Stayed overnight with tour group
Aug 2019 • Couples
A real privilege to stay overnight in this beautiful, peaceful environment. Rooms were single gender arranged around a small courtyard with sinks with running water. Towels and bedding supplied. You are pretty free to wander around and can wake to the sound of early morning prayers. The showers have limited opening hours and toilets are squat style. The bustling tourist town with restaurants, shops and bars is a short walk away. Bus station similar. If you have the opportunity to go to the 'hot spring's to sooth your limbs from walking I totally recommend the resort style experience (intrepid tour groups I mean you!). Hot showers are available!! Lots of water!! Monastery is a unique experience.

Ancient Feeling Temple
Dec 2019
This temple is easy to go too, it is not too far from the bottom of the mountain and if you are feeling lazy to get the hang of a ancient temple, this is your go to place. There's paid lodging where you can spent the night there and place for you to pray and offer incense joss sticks.

We were visiting this temple on 27th of December.
All of the monk here are male.
Good to have pray for Budhism, and alil joyness will be found here. Beside the temple, you also could see one building for antique Buddhist furniture sell. The architecture of all of the building is really nice and the design creatures of Gods are also extremely best.

Infront of the big door. You could find a hill that goes to a small garden with canopy to enjoy the greens surround you.

This templ is famed for its porcelain Buddha made in the famous imperial furnaces of Jingdezhen. The temple is beautiful and relaxing, a lovely visit.

A quiet monastery
Nov 2017 • Solo
This place does exactly what it is for. Being a quiet serene place to gather your mind and at the same time seeing ancient religious history unfold. I just loved going here, and the short walk from the village street made it even better.

A place to worship

Nothing extraordinary at the temple. Cameras were not allowed. I took a tour for the entire facility. Not as large as some other ones.

Interesting insight to Buddhism and Mount Emei
Jan 2018
Although the number of monasteries is far fewer than it was in the past, those that remain are well-preserved and well worth an extended visit. The area is well sign-posted and so even visitors with no Chinese language skills will find the time well spent.

An Important
Dec 2017 • Couples
This temple is at the foot of the mountain and is an important temple at Emei. Although not the nicest temple i've seen, it is nonetheless a must visit if time permits. It is popular with the locals as well. Shouldn't take more than 1.5 hr to visit.
