A fantastic example of 'post-cultural revolution' architecture.

Let me be clear, this place neither feels old, looks old or legit. However, be aware that as is the case with most things in China, it has been knocked down, rebuild, polished and... read more

I was so intrigued at how many different temples there were there. The 3D murals are so beautiful, and colourful. Burn some incense for your good fortune.
