I visited early morning and the mist was wonderful. I heard music and followed into a back area where students were practising traditional instruments. Couldn't be happier. I haven't seen a larger Taoist temple . Even bigger than White Clod in BJ.

Meditate under 4000 years old tree! You can feel the history and ancient power here. So many 3000-4000 old trees in one place would be difficult to find elsewere.

Zhongyu temple is the reason to go to Dengfeng! Way better than the Shaolin temple - much more authentic and without the crowds. Would definitely recommend visiting during your trip.

We visited Zhongyue Temple on the way to Shaolin Temple. Zhongyue Temple is a very old Taoist temple (about 220 BC) located at the southern foot of Taishi Mountain. It is the largest and best preserved ancient architectural complex in the China's Five Great Mountains area. Zhongyue Temple, a World Heritage by UNESCO is a major scenic spot in Mount... More

We had some extra time in Dengfeng after visiting a Shaolin the day before, so we chose to see this temple. It is very interesting and there is quite a lot to see and learn about Taoism. Make sure not to miss out on the side corridors which a filled with very special statues. It was quite daunting at times.... More
