This is one of the more impressive temples I have ever seen. I'm not Buddhist but live in Asia so I've been to quite a few temples as they are always one of the more popular tourist attractions in areas. The main idol is gargantuan! You are literally in the clouds at the top of the mountain and won't be able to see anything for a minute, then the clouds move on and suddenly you realize how beautiful of a location you are in! Be sure to walk to the edge of a cliff (they have guardrails) and let your shadow cast into the clouds below, a rainbow forms around your shadow and locals say that it is good fortune. I don't believe in fortune or luck, but it is very pretty and neat. Worth the trip from Chengdu to make a probably 3 day trip to see this and the LeShan Giant Buddha.
If you want to stay at the hotel that is at the top of the mountain (after the cable car ride) then search for it at english.ctrip.com. This is a Chinese based hotel/flight/etc booking site but has a good English site and customer service reps who speak English as well. We stayed one night and it was incredibly serene at night after most of the tourists had gone. Then the next morning we got up early to see the sunrise from the peak.
