What travelers say:

To climb a high platform, you can come to this temple, actually two temples next door. Standing on the platform, overlooking the whole Xining City is a different meaning. Not the first 15th, nor bath Buddha festival, so the temple is not open. But the staff inside the temple was very kind and sent us fruit.

Additional Information


Nanchan Temple is also called Nanshan Temple. It is one of Qinghai's earliest Han Dynasty Buddhist monasteries. Nanchan Temple has a long and storied history. It is one of Qinghai's most important Buddhist sites and very many pilgrims and tourists come here to pay their respects. The temple has been destroyed many times because of wars, natural disasters and other calamities. The current temple's buildings were built during the Qing Dynasty. It is one of Xining's most precious collections of ancient architecture. The entirety of the temple is built around the shrine to Guandi, according to the styles and layout of Chinese classical architecture. Among the many Tibetan temples and stupas, which are common in the Qinghai area, this is a prominent and unusual structure.
