We came here because it is part of the World Heritage cluster. After having visited so many temples, this site is just another where pilgrims come to offer homage to the many deities. It was quite quiet & peaceful, which makes it more enjoyable. We...More

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.
