Temple: The largest Buddhist temple
in Kunming with a history of more than 1,200
years. It is located on the south side of
Yuantong Hill, famed for its grand architecture
and design. Yuantong Temple was first built
in the late 8th and early 9th century, the
time of the Nanzhao Kingdom in the Tang
Dynasty. After two major restorations and
expansion in the Chenghua period (1465-1487)
of the Ming Dynasty and the 24th year of
Emperor Kangxi's rule (1686) of the Qing
Dynasty, the temple took on its present
design, with covered corridors, bridges
and grand halls.
Lake Park: Also named Cuihu Park, is
located on the west side of Wuhua Mountain.
The lake is divided into four parts by two
long banks. The banks are covered with an
abundance of willow trees and dotted with
a variety of vibrant lotuses. This contrast
between the pale green of the willows and
the array of colors in the lotuses makes
the park a popular destination for nature
lovers. During the winter months, black-headed
gulls from Siberia migrate to Green Lake
and entertain the crowds of visitors as
they circle around and snap up bread, usefully
provided by a herd of local vendors, thrown
up into the air by tourists.
Hills: Located at the west bank of the
Dianchi Lake, it is a range of five mountains
well covered by evergreen woods stretching
over 40 kilometers and over 2,500 meters
above sea level, perfect for hiking. The
Dragon Gate is near the top of the mountain;
it is a group of grottoes, sculptures, corridors
and pavilions that were hacked from the
cliff between 1781 and 1835 by a Taoist
monk and co-workers.
Lake: The lake covers 300 square km
and extending 40 km from north to south.
The western side of the Dianchi Lake is
covered by mountain forest, while the eastern
side is dotted with the fisheries and agribusinesses.
This ocean-like lake is indeed the best
place to go for those people who wish to
get away from the bustling city and be close
Temple: A famous Taoist temple located
on the Mingfeng Hill. The temple was first
constructed in 1602 during the Ming Dynasty.
The main building of the Golden Temple is
entirely built from bronze, weighing about
