There was some maintenance running by the time we were there, so some things were not open for the public. But we still could enjoy the temple. It was the first time we went to a taoist temple and we could find lots of differences to the buddhist temples.

They were renovating this temple when we went, but we loved the tumbledown nature of the parts that had not yet been repainted. Some beautiful old buildings, and lots of local people having picnics, going to the teahouse and doing Tai Chi. It had a great atmosphere, and some very nice statues. Two lovely surrounding parks and a long street... More

Though the temple is very beautiful and it's a nice break from all the Buddhist temples, the best experience was the teahouse on the premises. We were there on a business day but the place was flocked by the elderly; knitting, painting, playing cards and chatting. They explained everything to us in Chinese, which we don't understand but their friendly... More

This is a quiet place. The incense smells notably diff fr those in buddhist temples. Taoists keepers dressed in their traditional garbs are nice to look at. So are the folks who touch the bronze ram followed by themselves to 'transfer' the energy. Another sight are the large wall paintings of deities in the various halls. There is a tea... More

I loved this complex of temples, pagodas and gardens. It can be easily reached from the city centre and is surrounded by the Cultural Park. There is now a small entrance fee of 10CNY, but it's worth every penny. So much to see and so many truly inspiring, beautifully decorated shrines. Photography is not permitted inside any of the temples,... More

I loved the Green Ram Temple, and the YinYang symbols, the halls and pagodas, the integration of nature into the site, and the relatively inexpensive entrance fee (just over a dollar USD).

This is a complex of temples. I love the peaceful environment and the beauty of the buildings. Plan some time to visit 1-2 hours..sit in peace and observe. My only regret is not having a knowlegable guide.

Qingyang Palace or what we call Qingyang Taoism Temple is the biggest Taoism temple in the whole southwestern side of China. Originated from Sichuan, Taoism has affected the capital city Chengdu in many ways. Many tourists may think that these places ,such as buddhism or taoism temples are quite difficult for them to visit, because of the different culture, it... More

This is a nice temple to spend 1-2 hours visiting. The entrance fee of 10 RMB is very good value for a relaxing and uncrowded site. It can be combined with other nearby sites to make a half-day but does not really warrant half a day by itself.

This temple complex is well maintained and worth a visit if you are into ancient chinese buildings. I think you'd probably get most out of it with a tourguide but a good guidebook might do the trick as well. The buildings are impressive in both style and size. Worth a visit.
