As usual the signs inside are not good for history but are excellent for a laugh - worst direct translation I have seen. The place isn't authentic-old it's more of a neglected chinese plastic museum. Wouldn't pay the 30 yuan again. The frescos aren't impressive either. They just started fundemental maintenance works and left them in the middle. Bah.

This tour is usually combined with the visit to the Baisha Old Village. The frescoes have not lost their original colors considering that they are in the open in the hall.

A very quiet spot with the main point of interest being Chinese fresco's dating back to the 13th century. The main building is surrounded by smaller typical Chinese buildings one of which served as our restaurant for lunch. Buildings are typically colourful and landscaping both peaceful and pretty

A few historical buildings located in a park setting in this old capital of the Naxi contain Ming period murals. They are of high quality but rather difficult to appreciate because of the lack of light inside the buildings. Get a brochure or a book if you want to see them more clearly!

As well as being the location for the the Baisha frescoes, Dabaoji also includes an ancient residence with lots of photographic displays of the buildings history (none of which were in English). The Ming Dynasty frescoes were frankly disappointing and you'd need a guide and a real historical interest to make the visit worthwhile.

The frescoes are pretty dark and of course can't be well lit to preserve them, so they are just kind of hard to see. And the complex of buildings they are in are only just so-so. However 2 of the 4 buildings were closed for renovations when I was there (still had to pay the full price) so I guess... More

Visiting the old Baisha palaces is probably worth it if one is interested in the old history of the area. There are quite a few interesting artifacts in the museum like an old Sanskrit tablet and some really old carvings in addition to the local royal families (12th century) belongings. However, all the signs and descriptions are in Chinese so... More
