This is usually the starting point for visiting the Emeishan. The temple is at the foot of hill and very close to the tourists travelling centre.

Our tour bus dropped us off at Welcome Square. We walked up hill 5 to 7 minutes along a very beautiful pathway. There was a nice big space in front of the temple door; sometime they will hold events there. In front of the main temple there is a big tray for people to burn incense. The temple has many... More

Baoguo is located in the foot mountain of emeishan. It is surrounded by many temples in that area. It has many narrow stairs, so for elder people, please be careful. For you who are quite religuous, or a buddhist, this place would be suitable for u

Nothing spectacular about this temple, but it has quite vast temple grounds. Good for exploring and killing time.

This is a must visit. Very cultural. There is a souvenior shop selling Jade and precious stones souveniors in the temple ground. There is a promoter that speaks good english there. Beautiful place. Must visit.

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.
