My son doesn’t like visiting temples. „They are all the same“ he says. But this time he was very excited and we spent two hours at Dazhao. Just beautiful, colorful, with lots of details. A must in Hohhot

This experience was definitely different than other temples we have visited in China. Lots of colorful fabrics and interesting buildings. Could see the local influences. Lots of beggars at the ticket window. 35RMB for adults.

The temple is one major attraction in Hohhot for good reason - its centralised location. It's surrounded by busy traffic, eating places, Saishang Old Street, meeting places by locals and small hotels. No one can doubt the history of this temple but it does not...More

Pro: central location, good toilets Cons: rude staff, beggars, overselling of worthless items, dirty, loud, common, small, overpriced, poor signage Notes: Go to Wudang Temple outside Baotou for a better Buddhism-experience.

Majority of the buildings were recent add ons or renovated. The layout of the monastery is the same as all the other Tibetan Buddha monasteries. Once you have seen one, you have seen them all. It is just a matter of size. Go if one...More

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...More

Nice visit if you are in the city. Different than most Buddhist temples and has historic significance. The old street is right across the plaza that you can walk to.

This well maintained temple complex contains many wonders. The monks study and pray within the temple and it is really worth a visit.
