What travelers say:

Located in the south of Yuncheng, the Yuncheng is such a small county, where you can see a large number of national cultural and security units, such as the birthplace of the Western Chamber of Notes; for example, there are Chinese murals of art treasures; for example, there is China's second-ranking Guangren Wang Temple; For example, there are also a collection of Song, Yuan, Ming and Qing Dynasties of the four dynasties of the city temples. First stop: Yongle Palace here you can see the large scale of the dynasties and Yuan, the murals are rich, the figures reach hundreds of people, and each of the different forms, and complement each other. Here you can also see the life of Lu Dongbin and Wang Zhongyang, the details are clear, the lines are beautiful, is indeed the essence of ancient frescoes. Besides, you can also see the extremely familiar Wuhan Huangjue Tower, is the earliest scene of Huangjue Tower in China. The second station: Guangren Temple is the second place in China, there are three semi-Tang Dynasty buildings, they are all in the territory, except the Wutaishan Buddha Temple and Nanzhang Temple, another Tang Dynasty wooden structure is hidden in the Tongcheng, this is the second Guangren Temple, It is the second largest temple in the period of construction after Mt. godai. Today's Guangren Wang Temple is not big, only a Qing Dynasty stage and the main temple of the Tang Dynasty Qinglong Temple, it really looks very small, after all, it is only a small civil temple, but because of the time to add, so Guangren Wang Temple looks more than a few points of heavy feeling. Third stop: Tongcheng City Temple Tongcheng another national key cultural and security units - Tongcheng City Temple. Because just saw the small area of King Guangren Temple, and then saw the Temple suddenly feel very large. In addition to the size of the vast, the most pleasant surprise of the temple is that it has four dynasties at the same time, respectively, the Song, Yuan, Ming and Qing Dynasties are very representative of the building. In addition to the overall architecture, in the Tongcheng City Temple can see many damaged Buddha statues, stone horses and stone monuments, even some stone monuments are still in the Tang Dynasty. This is the horse and stop in Yuncheng when traveling to the city of the three national key cultural and security units, although their visibility is not as high as Pingyao ancient city and Yingxian wood tower, but with their uniqueness also become one of my favorite attractions in Shanxi travel.
