It’s not just the three pagodas that reflect so beautifully in the pond, it’s also well worthwhile catching the trolley bus to the top of the temple and walking back down. Truly stunning backdrop with lake Erhai in the background.. a magical place, indeed.

The temple is quite big and a long walk up the hill. Well preserved and full of details. We would have regretted not to come.

Everyone talks about the three pagodas, but I thought the temples behind them we the real attractions. Take the time and make your way to the top.

Breath-taking collection of three structures, making a trip to Dali worth all the complexities. I put is on the same plane as the Sydney Opera House or the Taj Mahal. I would suggest finding a guide/tour to take you here, perhaps with Old Town added....More

It was worth stopping by just to see them and take a photo because of their historic significance. However, it will take you only a short time for that.

This complex is just astounding. It’s not just the pagodas but also 21 temples that keep on going back up the hillside. Worth trying to get to the top for magnificent views - you couldn’t do the last 2 when I was there. Definitely worth...More

The reflection of the 3 pagodas in the lake is a photographer's dream. Although you aren't able to go into the pagodas the temple complex behind them is a fascinating area to explore. Hard to believe it is so new (less than 10 years old)...More
