Rich in Chinese history, many ancient temples. Not the top on our list after seeing other temples. The grounds were interesting.

It is a quiet temple, constantly under renovations. During holidays it is very busy and packed. It is nice to visit if you understand the history behing General Guan, if not, White Horse temple is more worth your time.

If you like the character General Guan, then this place is worth the visit. Otherwise, you may want to consider giving it a miss. It has rich Chinese history.

This temple is a historical site to be visited if you happen to be in this Luoyang Town. No photographing is allowed inside the temple but there is many local stalls selling souvenir nearby the site.

I wanted to visit this temple as I recently watched a TV series dealing with the Romance of the Three Kingdoms, where Guan Yu was a main character. I enjoyed visiting the temple, but if I had to do it over again, there probably is not enough of a reason to visit.

The site was rebuilt in the last century. The only important relic is the tomb which is a dirt mount. There are more interesting temples architectural wise in the area.
