Cost: 3 to 2 to 20 tickets per month, a crown incense, such as security incense. $ 20, including signatures. The symbol of peace is like a $ 10. Environment: the environment is simple, well-protected, a large number of inscriptions, this time there is no time to learn. There are several courtyards, some visitors stop, may be a Taoist resting... More

An interesting temple dedicated to the Eight Immortals. The temple is nicely laid out and generally not too busy. Enter through the main gate and it's the second central building you come upon that houses the Eight Immortals. Great if your visiting with children or teenagers as they can follow up doing some research. Garden at the rear with some... More

I am told by Chinese friends living in Xi'an this is not an especially popular attraction for foreign tourists, but it ought to be! Had the pleasure of witnessing a not very common ceremony where thanks were being given for a deed the religious leaders of the Temple had performed; very interesting and I felt privileged to have been there....

Just a small relaxing temple in Xi'an. Someone who worked/lived/worshiped there shared a small sweet snack with us. Its always a more enjoyable time when you can connect with someone! Its a good visit if you have time, but not a must.

The local Taoism temple is normally not listed as an attraction for foreign tourists under standard tour plan. A little knowledge on Taoism could be interesting. You can consider visit it if you really have spare time and do not know where to go.

But it is nice to visit it duaring week days, quite and sacred, especially there is an interesting wall full of Chinese stands for happiness, hope and blessing. Many pepole try to touch it, attempt to get the good luck for coming... More

In my opinion if you are pressed for time this is the one sight I would cut. It's a short walk from the City Wall's east gate. I didn't find the complex all that interesting. Looks like one of the many temples I've visited around Asia.

We got a moped (3 wheelers transport) for RMB10 to get us there from Ibis Hotel. As you enter the temple, there are 2 rows of shops selling antiques of deities & many other prayer items. We didn't stop by to peek into them unless you decided to spend a day just in this temple. Although we didn't understand Chinese... More
