This Temple is no more in operation. The main building is chained. Only small traders are seen occupying surrounding. As a visitor, I am sad to see the Temple in this despair condition.

This seems to be a temple that has been shut down by the government, but I’m not 100% sure. All of the shrines are closed, and the ones that are open have been converted to small shops - mostly books, calligraphy supplies, and some other small things. Some people have written praise notes and glued them to the shut gates, so that might be interesting to see if you can read Chinese, but I don’t think this is worth a special trip.

This is a beautiful, small temple squashed between buildings in Lanzhou. It is quite dwarfed by the buildings around it. We visited in winter and it was very quiet. One man walked in and did prayers and incense burning. All signs are in Chinese so we could not work out what temple it was or any other information about it. But the Gods and statues are impressive and it is worth a visit.

One thing cool about this place is you can watch crafts people creating their handicrafts. I do wish I had visited before the last day of my stay in Lanzhou, as I would have loved to have one of the caligraphers paint a Chinese proverb or Mao poem on that beautiful golden rice paper. I am not one to buy random souvenirs, otherwise I would have just purchased an already painted scroll. So, I recommend heading here with a favorite literary piece to have painted by the artisan calligrapher, that way you know you're purchasing something meaningful and nit just an article from the newspaper (that's what one calligrapher was working from). My Chinese professor was able to bargain for a real jade bracelet, but warned students not to purchase jade unless they knew how to identify real from fake. Also, if you want Chinese paintings or reprints, I'd suggest doing your homework on local artists, as they all seemed to have books and magazines on hand that featured them as "top artists." Lastly, good luck bargaining if you are a Westerner. If you have a local with you, the vendors will drop 1000RMB to 100, easy. But as westerners without our Chinese guides, we found it impossible to get any worthwhile bargaining. Oh also, a little girl tried to pick pocket my friend. She reached her hand into his front pocket and when he turned around, she ran to the lap of one of the vendors. We assume dad instructed her to do this. So, keep your hand on your wallet and your handbags zipped and in front of you.

We took in the afternoon show and were thoroughly impressed. Mike enjoys what he's doing and it shows. The show is one of the best that you can see in Branson and we'll see him again if we're back in town. Anyone what tries to steer you away from his show is doing you a disservice. DON'T LET THEM DO IT! Most likely they're doing it because they make more by selling you tickets to whom they are pushing. See Mike Walker MTH. You'll be glad you did. Jim Jowski
