Situated in the ancient city within the walls. Small, quick area to visit with minimal walking. Screens are also quite clear to see some of the ceramic shows deterioration. Worth a quick visit.

This inner city temple and its 5 dragon wall is situated within the great walls and easy walking distance of the garden hotel and other attractions in Datong. Nicely kept and landscaped. Worth a visit.

A well keep glazed wall of the five dragons, very detailed and also colourful. It sits outside the Monastery and is free of charge and unlike most exhibits you can get close for photos and touching this ancient wall. I highly recommend you visit it.

Not bad, but not up to the standard of the Nine Dragon Screen, in Datong as well.
