We stayed in the Old Town area of Luoyang and took a cab there. Cost 40¥. It is not much faster than the bus but a lot more expensive. I recommend taking bus there.
Entrance fee was 30¥.
There are a couple of temples within, a Bell tower, a Drum tower, a pagoda and couple of museums. There is also an Indian style Buddhist temple donated by India and a Thai style Buddhist temple.
Overall they are just like any other temples. It is famous because it was the first Buddhist temple in China. If you are really interested in how White Horse Temple influences Buddhism in China and various region, you should hire a guide. Otherwise, it is not worth the time or effort.
