A place to visit for someone is interested in local history. Nice and quiet garden. Things look very new. Nothing much to see.

Might give this attraction higher points in the winter, but there's nothing much to see here and the sun was scorching hot. We went back to the hotel after a while

We were there late afternoon, there is nothing much to see there and the place not very well preserved, looked like an abandoned place to me.

Visited the temple and although the price is cheap, the condition inside is, well pathetic. Dirt and leaves everywhere, and not a single bench was clean enough to sit on. The attendants were all sleeping, except one girl who was playing on her cellphone and...More

Signages are all in Chinese. Non-Chinese educated visitors won't have clue as to whats happening. Why were the 5 officials banished? Why did a subsequent emperor build the halls in their memories? The stone statues of the 5 lords have only Chinese text. Non-Chinese educated...More
