The Dazhao Temple, built in 1580 is surrounded by commercial shops and a few other temples. It is a good place to understand Mongolia culture. Entrance fee is RMB 50. For tourists who have never experience Mongolian culture may find it interesting. But it can get repetitive after a while and difficult to understand if you are not a Buddhist. Reason is because the descriptors uses many religious terms. The hall of Dharmapala is a place worth visiting for its restored photos. Overall, it is a forgettable religious area, unless you have strong knowledge in Mongolian history.

The temple is just part of a larger area that includes the nearby old pedestrian street, several other buildings, a few other temples, and a huge pagoda. Be sure to explore the whole area.

Spent about 2 hours walking through the various halls in this huge temple complex. First impression of the area outside the temple was a huge bronze statue of Alatan Khan, who can be regarded as the founder of Hohhot. The temple has displays of Buddha, goddess of Mercy, the heavenly kings .... lots of photo opportunities in this ancient temple which I understand is 800 years old.

The temple itself consist of several buildings each with its own artefacts and art for you t see. It was pretty impressive and even for me (being a bit "templed out") I thoroughly enjoyed the visit. Before getting to the temple though we went through the market area which is full of vendors selling different souvenirs etc. It was actually also an enjoyable experience. This is also where the famous large statue of Alatan Khan is (it comes up when you google images of Hohhot, that's how I knew about it). We were there in winter/spring so modest clothing wasn't an issue for us - I don't kow the rules for summertime... There were also no lines when we were there, so we didn't have to wait, we just walked right in. Enjoyable experience, I recommend going.

Please note that the temple only opens from 8 in the morning. It's not open 24h. I had very little time in Hohhot and could only go around very early in the morning (before 8), so looking at the reviews I thought the temple was perfect since TripAdvisor says it's always open. It wasn't, but luckily the streets nearby are interesting so I had plenty of things to do.
