Since come to Pinyao to visit, we spent sometime to visit this temple that claimed to be a Taoist temple built hundred years ago. Lots of prayer to come here to pray for wealth and the architecture is beautiful and really a heritage gem.

This is one of a number of old buildings you can see (for a fee - free for seniors with their passport). It is an interesting temple which is still in use today.

Daoist temples are my favorite style temples in China. I think it is because of their often misunderstood gods they have protecting the place. I often feel like the statues could come to life. If possible, have a guide tell you about the temple or...More

I remember this as being the temple of a rather scarey god who kept everyone in the city in order. In this sense it was memorable from the numerous temples you visit while touring China. Need about 45mins to 1 hour, no more & combine...More

Maybe the most beautiful place I've seen in China. Plenty of different rooms and spaces full of color and interesting explanations that let you understand a little bit about the configuration of the temple.
