I have been here many times when I was teaching in nearby Qufu. It is an authentic combination of Taoist and Confucian ideals. It is a great beginning to a trip to the top of the adjacent Mt.Taishan.

Went there (on accident) during an international photography day. Lot of people, lot of different tables with cultural goods. Also Also a show was performed. Otherwise it's a temple, but during that day it was a real treat.

The temple was empty and even the staff were missing. The rooms were used as temples with the people selling insents to put inside. It was more of a muddy Palace all about money than actually a beautiful palace of the ancients.

Nice time to spend an afternoon after arriving in city with the high speed train. Was pleasantly surprised by the monuments and vast area it occupies. Good way to relax a couple hours while watching elderly folks play cards...

The DaiMiao or Dai Temple is a good introduction of the city of Tai'An and a good welcoming of the Tai Mountain. It is a must to visit and it is on the way to the famous mountain so it is quite convenient.
