Historic beautiful temple.

Great historic site. Lots of stairs. Lot to get to the cablecar. Lot after it. And 100 more to get to the temple itself. Some 200 in all. Steep path. If you struggle with stairs, this site is not for you. The temple itself and surroundings is stunning. Don't miss the huge bronze bell.

Wonderful Trip

We took the cable car up to this temple and it was a majestic ride. The Teample is the oldest temple on Emei Mountain famous for its 62 tonne bronze statue of Puxian on a white elephant. Don't forget to rub the rear of the elephant and make your wish. I would take a guide to fill you in on the history.

More than just a visit to another temple
Jun 2018 • Couples
Our private Travel China Guide tour included a visit to Mt Emei - brilliant. Combined beautiful plants, unusual temples, a stunning cable car ride up to Wannian Temple, a shuttle bus ride up a steep mountain & Tracy, our local guide Travel China Guide offered us the chance to walk down along small pathways through the local farming area. It was all so varied and a real highlight. And for something totally different - 1 night we went to a variety theatrical production in Emeishan which included the amazing face changing art form. And when we exited the theatre, we discoverred that the town square sculptures were part of a light show. So happy we used this travel agency & they provided an excellent guide who personalised the itinerary to ensure we maximised our enjoyment.

Best old Buddhist temple around, off the beaten track!
Sep 2017
We stopped here on the way back from our stay at Emeishan. It is a short drive away, maybe 30 minutes or so to the village where you park the car. You must hike for about 20 minutes through the tea fields and bamboo jungle to get to the temple. There is a concrete path, but many people used walking sticks to help them along, and it is probably a challenge for the elderly. The main temple itself is very old, built about 1700 years ago or so. We encountered a local who acted as a tour guide to make extra money for her family and she gave us a tour along the way. She only spoke Chinese so if you need an English or other language guide you should book one in advance. It seems not many Westerners come here as it is out of the way. You will get the best experience here, out of any temple if you are looking for an authenticity. Also we purchased tea directly from the farmers who work in the area and it was the cheapest and freshest we found anywhere! The temple itself is known for it's recently famous "bamboo leaf" tea which we didn't know about until we left. I would try and buy some at the temple or nearby if possible and save yourself some money. This temple is definitely worth a visit if you are in the area and have some time!

Cool temple! Very different from others I've seen.

The architecture is quite different from other temples I've visited (though I'm not an expert). The scenery is awesome - there was fog in the morning that wrapped around the mountain making if feel like we were up in the clouds. There's lots to explore, but there are sections where visitors aren't allowed (just for the residents I assume). The music was peaceful with the birds and wind chimes adding a magical feeling to the atmosphere. I could (and did) sit there for a very long time enjoying the view.

There are lots of people worshipping here and you will know by the incense being burned and the many people bowing outside and inside the temple.

It really is a long way up to get there, but it is worth it. If you think you cannot walk that far up, there are other alternatives that can take you up there.
