This is one of the best maintained I have seen in China, colourful, kind of the same formula as all the others but smallish, 30 RMB (4 Euro) to get in. I only had 2 hours and managed to race around it, and the great mosque and see the 5 tower pagoda, walking, independently and get back to the hotel all with only didi to guide me. Glad I made the effort!

Da Zhao Temple, located in the old downtown area of Hohhot, established in the Ming Dynasty, is the biggest temple belonging to the Yellow Hats, and it is one of the few temples without a Buddha in Inner Mongolia. A different from most other temples in China, but you can finish this seeing the place an hour.

Having been to many, many, many Buddhist temples in China, Dazhao Temple in Hohhot was one of my favorites by far. Although it may not have an impressive view of mountains or historical significance as far as I know, I was mainly impressed by the Buddhist altars. This temple had some of the most exquisite and interesting altars of any temple I've visited and I have visited many temple. If you like art and sculptures, you will definitely find the Dazhao Temple aesthetically pleasing.

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.

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.

To give you a different taste of Inner Mogolia, not only the desert and grassland, this is a place to understand more of Buddist Culture, recommended for a day trip.
Do remember to tour around the different "streets" near to this temple

Am not a Buddhist, so did not follow the entire tourage of the place. It is good for people who want to learn more about the Buddhist culture and how the Buddhism influence spreads.
Many statues of Buddhas and colourful wall decor and sculptures. Can finish the place within an hour or so.
There is an old street nearby for those who wishes to buy some souvenirs from the Mongolia trip.

If you are interested in temples, this one is certainly worthy of the few hours it takes to explore it. The absolute best time to go, though, is right after Spring Festival during the Lantern Festival. Right out in front of the temple you can buy a lantern and send it up into the sky, complete with candles inside. Watching the thousands of lanterns light the sky is truly a sight to see.

One of the more significant temples in China. If you haven't seen a Chinese temple, then probably yes, you should visit the temple. But if you have been to many temples in other Asian countries, then this one does not stand out. There is no ultra tall Buddhist statue such as the one present in Yonghe Palace in Beijing, it is not as zen as many of the temples in Kyoto. There is an old street near the temple grounds where one can buy many souvenirs of Inner Mongolia.
