Not very opulence, showing its age, needs maintenance. Remains very popular for worshipers. Lots of incense burned, very smoky environment and not good for folks that have allergies.

From the name you can make out it's a Temple with many, many (17th Century) years of history. Surprising is very well kept and the compound are clean and rich in color. The slow walk towards the Temple are really swamp with monkeys and you do have the chance to see tiny babies monkeys been carried my the mother monkeys. Do be careful if you gave food with you. We enjoy the slow walk along the road towards the Temple and advise to walk down using the stairways.

This is a functioning temple built in the 17th century, with many surprises, most of which (to us) were the monkeys running and hopping around. We took a bus up to the temple because the hike would have been very difficult with the winding roads. Once we had passed through a typical mountain forest where people were actually picnicking, we marveled at the architecture... and the monkeys. It seems that Westerners are uncommon because many people took our pictures. The entry fee was minimal (perhaps 2 yuan) and I'd suggest hiring a guide to explain the various buildings and the mural. The most impressive statue, in my opinion, was that of the Maitreya (Future) Buddha. The large ceramic (?) mural near the exit of the complex depicts a Buddhist story; people close their eyes and try to touch the Buddha. It's hard to believe that such a peaceful place exists near such a bustling city!

This is a very nice functioning budist temple that is inside a protected mountainous area in the middle of the city. The temple itself is fairly old and in good (not excellent) condition. It's in the middle of a forest surrounded by mountains which acts as an additional element of mystique. The fact that it is not a museum but an actual living temple makes it more interesting as you can see lots of locals making their offerings and doing their rituals. The architecture of the temple (particularly the roofs is very nice). The visit is definately worthwhile but unless you have a lot of time available I recommend hiring a taxi to take you to the temple or hiring a guide. If you do the trip on your own you can walk from the base of the mountain to the temple (would require significant effort as this is NOT a hill) OR you could take the cable car up. While the cable car is convenient, do note that there is no good signage once you are above. So take a picture of the map downstairs or you will get lost (the trails branch out into 2-3 regularly with no signs what so ever)

So calm and nice to typical sooo beautiful. Ilove it! There you can buy for 4 yuan pineapple desert (pineapple slice on a stick ) and enjoy traditional Chinese park architecture. If you are interested in kung fu a lot of people come to that park to practice it and just to do morning exercises Must see if you are in Guiyang
