A large temple
Jul 2017 • Solo
This is a large temple dedicated to the ancient Emperor Yao. Quite an average attraction but is worth a visit for those historically minded. For those looking for something special, there is a world-record 300 kg (3.11 m diameter) drum.

Nice temple, very beautiful. Just have to say that there are almost no explanations, and it is normally forbidden to take pictures in the temples, which is a lame, because it is where it's the more beautiful.

只是一個很普通的仿古建築,裡面沒什麼建築物,也沒什麼可看,不值得花錢進去,更糟糕的是花錢請了講解員,她帶我進廟後,有個男人讓我拜神,被迫付了10元,後來又被糊裡糊塗的帶去旁邊寫祈福語,寫完後讓我付幾百元,這時候才心感不妙,我堅持不給錢, 而那個女講解員只站在旁邊不管,真是串通一夥黑遊客,最後我無奈付了$10,算是買了一個教訓。
The buildings were not ancient buildings. There are not much buildings inside and nothing to see. I hired a guide for introduction of the buildings. The guide took me in the temple, and one man asked me to pray, and was forced to pay RMB10. After that I was mislead to write down some words for pray and was asked to pay a few hundred dollars. I realized it was a trap and refused to pay. The guide just stood aside and kept silent. Although I insisted on not paying any money, I was forced to pay another RMB10. It was unbelievable that the guide help them to cheat tourist!

I have visited this site twice since moving to China. I have to say that this temple is beautiful. There is many things to see in the area including a very large drum and bell. If you want to you can pay a small fee of 1 to 12 RMB to ring the bell and hit the drum. Its considered good luck to do so. Though I have been twice I have to say my favorite time to visit is in the winter when it is covered in snow. It takes on a whole new look when you visit during the winter, plus there are not that many people there because its cold. If you are lucky you can visit the fair they have outside the gates of the temple. It there that you can buy gifts for people. Don't be surprised if people look at you and ask for photos. As a forgiener in the area you will probably one of the first they have seen in real life. So just smile and go with it.
