Interesting Temple

A must for the history and culture inclined. Very neat and beautiful. Easy access. Adjacent to other Buddhist examples from Thailand, Burma and India to compare styles.

This is a clearly a place for the devoted to come to still after all these centuries. Amazing to see monks strolling the grounds and the devoted coming to pray.

This temple is really nice. If you've seen a Buddhist temple then they're all really similar. I had a really good guide so it felt really worthwhile but I think without a guide it's just another temple. Lots of history though.

Our friends felt we needed to visit. Interesting temple and beautiful carvings. The grounds are attractive. We also spent time visiting the vendors outside of the temple and found them to be interesting as well.

The temple has great antique architecture which has remained intact for over 1,900 years. Worth a visit.

Its about 7-8 km from the city of Luoyang, we took a taxi and paid 35 yuan and tipped the driver 5 yuan. It is not a custom to tip in China. Or take the bus K56, K58, 87 or 91, and get off at Baimasi Station. Remember that most bus drivers does not English. It's not much to see... More

This is as good as it gets with regards to Chinese temples, with some very nice gardens and buildings. It is actually still used as a temple too, unlike many of the famous ones which have simply turned into tourist attractions. There is a section with Thai and Indian buildings which is worth a walk round. 1.5 hours is more... More

Very much worth a taxi trip or a 45 min bus ride. Its about 10km from Old Town and a nicely managed active Buddhist temple. It is a very important site for Luoyang history. Ticket - 50RMB
