Nice place to visit. There are two temples and both are built since Ming Dynasty. Entrance fee is considered relatively cheap, if compared with the other attraction area, and the weather is nice due to the temple is at high ground.

The area is quite big with lots of walking involved. If you go in the correct season, there are lots of blooming flowers. The temple is a little dilapidated but still worth some photos.

I can't believe Golden Temple was built for one beloved concubine, she must be very special! the grounds is expansive and lovely! gorgeous trees and many ancient artifacts. So much to see, so little time!
