This is worth the drive and then spending some time here. The temple has its origins back in the Tang dynasty and it slowly unveils itself to the visitor. Walk through the courtyards, see monks and nuns going about their daily work, listen to chanting or see the 100 plus statues with their very emotive expressions. This is a place that rewards time and patience - go and enjoy.

We headed to the temple late in the day (arriving at 4.15 pm, 45 mins before closing). The temple appeared to be free to enter - it had a sign saying Free Admittance. There was a service starting as we arrived, so we strolled around to the sound of gongs and chanting and singing which was really beautiful. The rooms with the amazing human sculptures were both locked, we waited around for a while and eventually asked a volunteer security guard with a red arm band whether he could unlock it (entirely by mime). He happily obliged and we had the rooms all to ourselves for half an hour. It really is amazingly interesting and entertaining to look at!

In terms of transport there is a public bus that goes to right outside the temple. The C61. It costs 8 Yuan per person and terminates at Dianmian Road. If you flag it down outside the temple it will stop and pick you up!

My son and I visited the temple on our way back from the Stone Forest. It is named for a special kind of bamboo that grows there. The bamboo is slender with very large "arthritic" joints. Inside the enclosure are nearly 500 life size figures of people engaged in daily activities One sculptor and five of his students made the figures. apparently he would go to local tea houses to watch people for true to life inspiration. Not crowded.

if you don't want to go to touristic places, if you want to relax, then you might like this temple, located in the north of the city.

This is a nice relaxing temple with some good sculptures. Worth a visit but public transport is a bit scarce if you don't read Chinese

While I was not too impressed by the temple grounds or buildings, the 500 statues of "ordinary people", dressed in their work clothes, was impressive, although some were not available due to renovations. Built in the Song Dynasty (960 to 1279 AD), although some say it was earlier in the Tang Dynasty (607 to 918 AD), this temple had to be rebuilt in the late nineteenth century because of fire. The 500 "enlightened ones" were created over a seven year period starting around 1280 AD.

We went there by taxi because of short time available. Taxi are not tuo expensive compared to Western prices and by 30 euros you go, walt and back. It is around 45 minutes from kunming. Temple itself is not special also if in a nice bamboo environment but there are 2 rooms filled with about 200 monk statues very particular. Their faces and looks are not Common ones some with a devilish smile. Something different and Unusual..

Almost 1:30 hours drive from the city center with buses.
Just a regular small temple, there is nothing special about it. Even if it was the first temple i have ever seen in china, i would have been disappointed.
