Sitting down at the East gate of the Qinghai-Tibet plateau, Xining is a bustling metropolis filled with constant growth and modern age shopping malls.
But if you venture a tiny further and off-the-beaten-route whilst in the city you can locate a plethora of beautiful monasteries, temples, road distributors and, of program, symptoms of Tibetan Buddhism embedded deep into the day to working day lives of approximately each area.
One of those people spots is the Beichan Daoist Temple.
Come stroll with me as I tour just one particular of the lots of temples in the bordering spot though awaiting my departure aboard the highest teach in the earth in route from Xining to Lhasa where I’ll be having a cultural 9 day price range tour of Tibet!
After discovering the front of the temple, I found a compact pathway primary to a great vantage level at the leading of the mountain. Not only did it offer you fantastic sights, but there was an ancient temple currently going through renovation.
However, it was off restrictions to travelers at the time but the view from exterior was however extraordinary.
Right after a fantastic working day of discovering, it was time to head again to the hostel. It’s usually a enjoyment getting acquainted with a metropolitan areas heritage. 🙂
Have you at any time been to China?
