It is a quiet temple, constantly under renovations. During holidays it is very busy and packed. It is nice to visit if you understand the history behing General Guan, if not, White Horse temple is more worth your time.

If you like the character General Guan, then this place is worth the visit. Otherwise, you may want to consider giving it a miss. It has rich Chinese history.

This temple is a historical site to be visited if you happen to be in this Luoyang Town. No photographing is allowed inside the temple but there is many local stalls selling souvenir nearby the site.
