9/40.- Xian, Mount Lishan, Chaoyuange Temple, shrine


The area seems to be pretty popular among locals, but I did not see many tourists. I guess, it is because it is not featured in most travel guides.

There are two main temples. Both of them have been reconstructed the Chinese way. I think nothing of the old temples remains today. They were destroyed by students, as Chinese guides say, during the Cultural Revolution. The two temples are quite beautiful. I really liked the combination of vivid colors used in their decoration. You have to buy an entrance ticket to visit the temples.
