Also known as Guangren Lamma Temple. It is a beautiful Tibetan Buddhist temple. The temple architecture, fittings and decorations display heavy chinese influence. Unfortunately they have only a chinese speaking guide and very little or no english translation. But if you are familiar with Tibetan...More

We have been to many local temples but this one is for Tibetan Buddha. It is very quite and peaceful place. It is only Tibetan temple in Xi'an. Surprisingly not many local people knew it. Charge £2 entrance fee.

Beautiful Temple situated near the corner of the North West wall. Not large but well presented and maintained. Not on the tourist route so very quite, our hotel suggested we go there. I would recommend a trip there.

We first saw the Guangren Lama Temple from the walls of the City as we cycled around them. Incorrectly located outside the walls on the trip advisor map, the temple is actually nestles inside the Walls in their North West corner. We used the Xi'an...More
