“Daci Rock Xuan Kongsi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2013

While on an overnight excursion to Zhuge we happened upon this site quite by accident. (Pulled into a service station and saw a huge billboard advertising it.) We decided to make a quick visit which meant we didn't see the entire site so we have to go back again and explore fully. It is similar to the Hanging Temple in Shanxi although not so old or original I suspect. It is known by various names from what I gather (Daiji, South Xuan Kong) and even with post-visit research I have been unable to find out how old or close to original the actual site is. Compared to the predominantly wooden Shanxi Hanging Temple it consists of more concrete formwork and is a little less 'hanging' and a little more 'nestled in'. It has likely been developed from an original smaller structure and now has a cable car in place to take you up the 500+ metres. The walk takes you through the hanging temple structure, a large golden buddha, a lake, further cliff hugging structures which are occupied my monks, the standing buddha, and a waterfall. We only made it as far as the first temple and the golden buddha but weather permitting this still affords you a good view of the entire site except the waterfall. The entry is 80rmb, cable car up is 50 and down is 40. Next time I would allow 3 hours and take the cable car up and then walk the entire circuit down.
