Zhiyun Temple has always been a symbol of Lijiang’s purity. It has not undergone any business model development. In the past, every time the caravan passed through here, it would pray at Zhiyun Temple to bring thoughts and blessings to the family, and go to some quiet places to let the heart. After being released, Zhiyun Temple is a good choice, and it is also the first choice for friends and relatives who like quiet travel.
