It doesn't take long to go around the temple but it is worth a look. Lots of Bai gods, a fearsome looking set, part museum and just a nice looking place in the main square.

On the square in Old Shaxi Town, this temple has a wonderful façade. The interior is very quiet and peaceful. It is definitely worth a look.

If you have an extra half-hour, a visit to this temple is worthwhile. It is part temple; and part museum. There is a small admission charge. Allow 30 to 45 minutes.
