Very interesting place as I really enjoy visiting temples. They are very beautiful architecture of Chinese history and cultural. Here is a very symbolic entrance fee - only 3 yuan. Inside you can see several building of the temple, souvenirs store. Monks have there regular sessions. This place is very good come to take some photos.

This was our third Daoist temple we visited in China. Like the others there is very limited information available in English (and not much in Chinese either.) A knowledgable guide is a huge help.

The timing of our visit was extremely fortuitous. We were able to observe, from a respectful distance, a ceremony being performed by the monks for a young woman. From my research on Daoism I was able to surmise that what we were witnessing was in fact a form of exorcism. Needless to say, that is something you do not see every day. Our guide had no idea what it was and was fascinated to hear me explain how they banishing an evil spirit.

This temple is mainly dedicated to the legendary Eight Immortals: Han Zhongli, Zhang Guolao, Han Xiangzi, Tieguai Li, Cao Guojiu, Lü Dongbin, Lan Caihe and He Xiangu. Located on Changle Fang Street in the eastern suburb, it is the biggest Taoist temple in Xian and is a famous Taoist architecture in northwest China. Situated in the midst of busy alleys and a bustling neighborhood, I found the entrance by following a monk. It only cost 3 yuan to enter and is just what you would expect for a Taoist temple; solitude, simplicity, and tranquility.

Yet another temple with deities galor. Always nice to by some incense sticks to remember 'absent friends' and place the in the appropriate pit to smoulder. Be respectful. Peaceful and spiritual with a small amount of display boards in poor American English (you'd think they could get their translations spot on but they're shockingly poor).

Cost: 3 to 2 to 20 tickets per month, a crown incense, such as security incense. $ 20, including signatures. The symbol of peace is like a $ 10.
Environment: the environment is simple, well-protected, a large number of inscriptions, this time there is no time to learn. There are several courtyards, some visitors stop, may be a Taoist resting place!

An interesting temple dedicated to the Eight Immortals.

The temple is nicely laid out and generally not too busy. Enter through the main gate and it's the second central building you come upon that houses the Eight Immortals. Great if your visiting with children or teenagers as they can follow up doing some research. Garden at the rear with some nice seating. Good to relax in. Some nice ornamental Chinese bridges to walk over and to ponder.

Equally important the temple served as a refuge for Puyi - the Last Emperor of China - who fled with the Dowager Empress Cixi. These rooms are to the left after the Temple of the Eight Immortals but are locked and out of public view. The courtyard is open.

Worth a visit - nice stroll.
