Taoism temple
Sep 2019 • Couples
Taoism temple in the centre of the city. The entrance is next to the culture park. ¥10 for entry and it’s pretty good to pay because it keeps loud tourists away.

There are old and new buildings together, that are mostly shrines for Taoism superiors or immortals. It’s briefly explained.. in English, Japanese and Korean. I guess if you practice Taoism, you would understand who is whom but for a tourist like me, it’s a bit confusing to figure out.

Hence I focused on beauty of buildings, tea house, and well maintained garden. It’s tranquil and relaxing....as well as beautiful.
Take time to have tea and play with this friendly cat too...

Fun to see a Taoist temple, for a change
Jun 2019 • Family
Most of the temples you're going to see in China, especially in the east of the country, are Buddhist, with a smattering of Confucian. This is one of the very first Taoist temples I've seen there, and the first time I've been to a working Taoist temple with monks—we stopped for a while and listened to them pray. Cool even if you're not interested in Taoism, with lots of lovely buildings and statues.

Keeps impressing!
Jun 2018 • Friends
I make an effort to go to Qingyang Temple each time I go to Chengdu and it doesn't disappoint. It has been expanded considerably in recent years and more shrines and temple buildings have been added.

The temple can draw crowds, so going during Chinese holidays can be noisy and detract from the experience, but I do think this is one of the most beautiful and interesting temples I've been to during my time in China.

The temple gets its name from the bronze statue of a ram which Chinese people rub for good luck. Visitors are encouraged to do this although it isn't mandatory.

Not touristy and very interesting
Sep 2018 • Couples
It was one of my favorite places in Chengdu. Easy to find, near the park, cheap entrance. There were very few people inside, peaceful atmosphere. Temples are very interesting, with colorful decorations. Complex is not very large, but you can spend couple of hours walking there. Highly recommend.

A small old temple inside a busy modern city
Sep 2018 • Family
But it's surely for devotional people to focus on their religion.
It's peaceful and calm, has the magic to cool you down.
There are so many different god's statue here, place to learn Chinese fair tales, if you can remember them all, :D

Great to see a different style of temple.
Aug 2018 • Friends
Our first Taoist temple and it impressed us. Interesting pavilions and statues, clear information in both Chinese and English and big courtyard areas. Easy to access at the back of Cultural park (exit and turn right)

old park
Sep 2017 • Solo
This is an older park, and not as well kept up, but door fee sure didn't reflect that. I was told it was a must visit, but I would say 2nd tier priority at best. Park is run down, houses some traditional Chinese building architectures, the rest is just a regular park with trees n grass

A rare gem and quiet retreat...
Jun 2018 • Family
... in the middle of Chengdu. As others have remarked, while Buddhist temples are a dime-a-dozen in China, readily accessible Taoist ones are rare gems. For a deep explanation of what you're seeing, rent the guide by the name of Haba (see my review of him on Tripadvisor). Then go to the adjacent culture park, and feed the koi from a bottle!
