... with some new temples of Southeastasia, built up by the monks of the specific countries (e. g. India, Myanmar, Thailand). So it is mixed historic and modern. There are no signs and explanations in english. So you can maybe ask for a free guide (they speak good english). Entrance was 40 Yuan.

Best to take the bus (RMB1.5) from Luoyang. Check with Baidu.com ( Chinese equivalent of google map) for the relevant bus to get there. A lovely, calm and peaceful place. Surprisingly clean too! Only downside is to have to bear with and know how to step away when people spit close to you ( 1:5 F:M).

Worthy of a visit, taxi ride from Luoyang city on meter could be from 40 yuan, like the international tribute to this 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.
