Yunmen Temple is an amazing place, not only we could take a look around the grand designed temple, but also we paid a visit to another attraction nearby, the home to Yao Ethnic Minority. We really had fun here. The local people here are very nice.

It is one the five grand sects of the Zen School of Buddhism. Beautiful surroundings, and has nice walks up the mountain behind it. Not too far of... More
