not worth going out of your way for, if you happen to pass by, stop.
Oct 2019
Very disappointing, though the landscaping of the small compound is attractive, the murals are nearly impossible to see, the buildings are dark, you cannot get close, there are said to be 53 murals in the various palaces, but in fact, only a single large one, in the center of the Dabaoji Palace, can be properly viewed, as those on the walls surrounding it are blocked off, those in the Liuli Palace too high and too dark to be seen, and the Dading Hall was closed when I visited in October 2019. Reproductions of a few are on display but they are inadequate. As the site is on the main road (#6 bus) through BaiSha, which is worth a visit, and on the way to other attractions, such as Yufengsi, it may be worth a stop but prepare to be disappointed. Of note, there is a 500 year old "fern leaf hedge" willow (Tamarix chenensis) on the grounds.

Frescoes of history
Apr 2017 • Solo
The frescoes date back about 600 years but they are very dark and difficult to see properly. Obviously, light is supressed in order to preserve them. They are situated in a delightful courtyard and when visiting the cultural village should be seen

Expensive, neglected and boring
Aug 2016 • Couples
As usual the signs inside are not good for history but are excellent for a laugh - worst direct translation I have seen.
The place isn't authentic-old it's more of a neglected chinese plastic museum.
Wouldn't pay the 30 yuan again. The frescos aren't impressive either.
They just started fundemental maintenance works and left them in the middle. Bah.

Lijiang - Baisha Mural
Dec 2014 • Couples
This tour is usually combined with the visit to the Baisha Old Village. The frescoes have not lost their original colors considering that they are in the open in the hall.

MORE INTERESTING IF CHINESE HISTORY UNDERSTOOD
Sep 2015 • Couples
A very quiet spot with the main point of interest being Chinese fresco's dating back to the 13th century.
The main building is surrounded by smaller typical Chinese buildings one of which served as our restaurant for lunch.

Buildings are typically colourful and landscaping both peaceful and pretty

Ming-period murals
Apr 2015 • Family
A few historical buildings located in a park setting in this old capital of the Naxi contain Ming period murals. They are of high quality but rather difficult to appreciate because of the lack of light inside the buildings. Get a brochure or a book if you want to see them more clearly!

A little disappointing
Mar 2015 • Couples
As well as being the location for the the Baisha frescoes, Dabaoji also includes an ancient residence with lots of photographic displays of the buildings history (none of which were in English). The Ming Dynasty frescoes were frankly disappointing and you'd need a guide and a real historical interest to make the visit worthwhile.

not the best part of Baisha but worth it if you're there
Nov 2014 • Friends
The frescoes are pretty dark and of course can't be well lit to preserve them, so they are just kind of hard to see. And the complex of buildings they are in are only just so-so. However 2 of the 4 buildings were closed for renovations when I was there (still had to pay the full price) so I guess I'm not the best judge. Combined with a trip to all the other small sites in Baisha (the monastery at the foot of the mountain, the embroidery school, the small town) this is worth a few hours.

Frescoes are nice but not all temples were open
Dec 2013 • Couples
Visiting the old Baisha palaces is probably worth it if one is interested in the old history of the area. There are quite a few interesting artifacts in the museum like an old Sanskrit tablet and some really old carvings in addition to the local royal families (12th century) belongings. However, all the signs and descriptions are in Chinese so you will need a translator to explain what each artifact is. The Buddhist frescoes are really old and beautiful and overall the site is well maintained. But it is undergoing some renovation which has closed some temples and palaces from viewing. You have to pay 30 RMB (15 RMB for students) to enter and will be asked to buy the 80 RMB old town renovation fee if you haven't bought it already.
