I liked this temple as the idols are quite different than other temples in China. Quiet place, very serene.

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.

The ticket office is located just outside the temple grounds. They have small lockers there for putting something about the size of a backpack but that’s about it. I wouldn’t risk leaving your luggage with them either.
