Some people have said it's a bit far from the town, but we were lucky having a borrowed car, for our trip and drove to another Bhuddist temple, which was pretty much free of tourists. There were some interesting sculptures of various gods and a...More

This is a Taoist temple complex that was rebuilt in 1864 but has been on this site since the Song Dynasty (960 - 1279AD). Entry into the large site is through a long tunnel-like gate and opens into a courtyard. There are actually three temples...More

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.

The temple where people will come to pray and seek peace. A big place and consider a very important part in the peoples life at that time. Good to visit and understand.

Devoted to the city god. Various Taoist temples, ancient trees. Not exceptional but certainly worth visiting as one of the 6 attractions on your tourist ticket.

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
