This is a good place to understand better Buddhism and have a look of different types of temples (Chinese, Indian, Thai, Malaysian). The garden is also nice for a walk (particularly in April when flowers blossom)

White Horse Temple is supposedly the place of Buddhism in China. The king had invite two Indian monks to bring scripture to China. These two monks are interred on either side of the temple. The temple is not the original but rebuilt on the original ground. However in addition to the temple there are three other Buddhist temples built as gifts from India, Myanmar and Thailand. The ground floor of the Myanmar temple is a fantastic little museum with embroidered Buddhist paintings. The embroidery is all on gold corded thread embroidery. The works are gorgeous and with incredible details.

So much history and stories packed into a small area. Popular with no only tourists but devotees as well. One of the best temples to see in China and one with great religious significance

Luoyang white horse temple is considered the origin where Buddhism was brought to China. This is the second most popular attraction, after Longmen Grottoes.

From my hotel along Longmen Avenue, I took bus K58 to final destination, 1.5rmb, about 70 mins ride. If you wish to take bus, get ready small notes and coins as bus doesn’t provide change. I paid 2rmb.

There are many shops just outside the entrance near the bus terminal stop. Entrance ticket to temple is 35rmb. It is a huge complex hence expect lots of walking. There are 2 main sections. Eastern section consists of various halls, pavilions and temples with many Buddhist statues. Common scenes are locals offering incense and prayers. There are a few small tour groups in the eastern section when I was there.

The western section is a fairly new international complex, with Thai, Burmese and Indian buddhist structures. These cover a wide area, especially the Thai complex. I spent 2 hours inside the complex. Hence allocate half a day for this place.

Not as spectacular to most tourist, but it houses some very rare Yuan era statues and buildings ( one of the harder to find examples for more serious history buffs ) it's not super far from the city
