The murals were disappointing. The replicas were damaged and it was difficult to really appreciate the originals. The town itself is quickly becoming overrun with tourists consequently it has lost any charm it may have enjoyed. A bit of a jaundiced review but in my...More

I was hesitate to pay for the entrance fee of RMB30 in the first place. It later proved that I had my grounds for hesitation. The size of murals is not impressive and let alone most of them were badly damaged without restoration.

While there are some old murals and picturesque landscape, it's not too accessible for someone who doesn't read Chinese. But it is worth a quick stop in because it's right there in town.

It depends on whether you take the number 6 bus or a taxi. Taxi fron Shuhe should be about half an hour, but of course will be more expensive.

You can easily do it on your own. Those pictured are a mixture of various local religions and "gods," ecumenical art, if you will. If you have visual aids to help identify the personages/gods, that would be helpful.
