Another temple! Everyone is different in architecture, but the inside is basically the same Buddhas and other deities. You can almost say you've seen it all before, but there are differences and each has a little different take, but it's all very interesting.

Stayed in monasteries before but this one was the best. We had a room right next to the 7 Buddha shrine.Very crisp bed and perfect view. Breakfast was very cheap and plentyfull, perfect start of a trekk on the mountain.

One of the few temples where there were not a whole lot of people. This was the first stop we had on our visit to Emei Shan. This huge temple with a few levels of buildings was quite beautiful. With fewer visitors made this a better site to visit.

This is one of the nicer temples in Emei area. You will see lots while climbing up the mountain. The loo here is nicer than other monasteries.

For a new Buddhist this was a must to see, superb Buddha's here for the initiated. Make sure you have the incense ticks.

The temple is is beautiful. The sureoundings are great for a walk (even in moonlight), The temple is open until 10:30 pm. The accommodation of course is basic (it's a temple after all), but for 28 CNY you get a bed and there are showers with hot water too. We were lucky enough to arrive during the evening ceremony and... More

This is a nice temple to walk around and read the teaching on the wall, if you can read Chinese. . It is among the older temples in Emei and it is huge. Don;t miss the area on the other side of main entrance to see the big bell that they took from the top of the mountain.

Baoguo temple situated at the foot of mountain and built (I guess) used terrace technique, because resemble much like steps, Since the temple situated at the foot of Emeishan, usage of stair is inevitable. However most of the stair... More

Unless you come here to pray, it is not worth visiting. There is nothing else you can do in the temple other than offering prayer.

Stayed here as part of a tour and had such a relaxing 3 days. The temple is beautiful and just a few minutes from the main street. The monks chant between 5.30am and 6.30am and it is wonderful, I popped out in my jarmies and listened to them, magical!!! Visited other temples on the mountain but felt privileged to stay... More
