Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Small temple which is Tibetan Buddhism. Not that fantastic. If you have nothing better to do or to spend some time before your next agenda, you may drop by. If you have gone to 大慈恩寺, that should be enough.

We visited these temples during a few days stop over. Easy accessible via metro.
The temples clustered together were beautiful. I do recommend

Great little temple complex and unlike most things in Xian, it is free to enter. It was surprisingly uncrowded, maybe because it is tucked away in the North West corner of the Old City with no other major sights around.

Great to spend 1 hour and gives a bit of variety to your visit to Xian. If you have 3 days or more on Xian, add this to your list of things to see.

A beautiful place to see. After a 10km bike ride on a city bike I did not have to pay any entrance fee and as a welcome gift everyone received a mask and a bottle of water. It was yet close to 40 degrees. The place is beautiful, full of colors, definitely worth for taking photos. Also monks have there regular sessions, many people go to pray there. For me, as I like visiting temples, this was the most beautiful one within our 12 day trip by car around Sichuan and Shaanxi.

This is off the tourist's grid and is in the local neighborhood. The temple is beautiful in her glory of colors. This was visited by a few of the Qing big guns in her hey days.

Take your time to walk in the temple's compound and enjoy the moment of tranquility. There is also a free food kitchen that provides for the local needy in the area. I was mistaken and invited to join in the soup kitchen queue.

Entry is free at the only Tibetan temple in Xi’an. It appeared quite new as it’s freshly painted. We spotted some painters finishing off the last few rafters. It must take great skill to repaint this multi coloured temple. Do look up to scrutinize the intricate ceiling design. Built around 300 years ago and rebuilt in 1952, the temple is very well maintained. We were lucky to visit when the sky was blue - the perfect foil to set off the vibrancy of the kaleidoscope of colours. It’s such a feast for the eyes!

it's not a big temple, but well worth going to. It's where the Dalai lama stays when he visits china. It's a blast of colour and a haven of peace.

If you like Tibetean temples, this one is a great example to visit. You will find it within 10m of the closest metro station and you wont regret the walking. It is in great shape, very well maintained. Not to miss.

Also known as Guangren Lamma Temple.
It is a beautiful Tibetan Buddhist temple. The temple architecture, fittings and decorations display heavy chinese influence.
Unfortunately they have only a chinese speaking guide and very little or no english translation. But if you are familiar with Tibetan Buddhism, you may recognize the shrines and deities (or at least make an educated guess).
Please wear respectful attire. This is a real temple, you can see monks crossing the courtyard as they go about their duties.
You can purchase a candle and make an offering. The donation goes to the temple upkeep.
