Guangyou Temple

Reviewed By homechushi - Auckland Central, New Zealand

I visited this temple which was straight acroos the road from where i was staying (Liaoyang Hotel ), i did find the price (50RMB) a little steep but there is alot of upkeep in this place , only takes a short time to walk around but if you bring some lunch with you it is a very peaceful and quiet place to sit and rest , the Buddha in one of the buildings is impressive .

Liaoyang White Tower Park

Reviewed By SzczRob - Chicago, Illinois

First, when I checked the map location for this attraction was wrong. This park is a short walk SE from the train station. Along the main road there are small vendors selling goods and snacks on the weekends (in good weather).
Tickets are 50RMB, though on slow days there is not always a person selling tickets and you can just walk in. A temple complex has existed on this site for a long time, but the current version was rebuilt after WWII. The temples are large and well maintained (bright colors). Contained in the main one is a larger sitting Buddha. This is also home to the White Pagoda (this park is also referred to as White Pagoda Park). There is also a nice fish pond on the site. A nice place to spend an afternoon or just hang out.

Anshan 219 Park

Reviewed By Martin A - Dalian, China

In winter, there are two areas of the frozen lake kept in great shape for skaters. One large area has a skating rink by a pagoda and another section, nearby, has a hockey rink. A beautiful pagoda serves as a picturesque backdrop, great for photos. The park is famous for the world's largest jade Buddha, a short walk from the lake.

The museum is in a very modern building and notes on the exhibits are in Mandarin and English.Exhibits are from the Bronze Age up until recent times.Weapons and pottery are displayed together with a large hoard of old coins found in the city in 2008.There is also a display of early photographs of the city.
Well worth a visit.

Jade Buddha Court

Reviewed By Jaya M - Singapore, Singapore

This 8 metre tall statue of Buddha carved from a single piece of jade is just stunning. I spent about half an hour inside the main temple, and didn't want to leave. The temple is set inside the 219 park, and there are two temples with jade statues of Buddha. The main temple is beautiful, and has murals painted over the walls as well as this incredible Buddha.
Highly recommend it! The entrance fee does seem comparatively high, however it's well worth it.

Anshan Qianshan Buddha

Reviewed By MountainMama304 - St. Petersburg, Florida

We used the little bus and the tram, but still were covered in sweat by the time we ascended the final steps to the temple that protects the mountain Buddha. Totally worth it as the views of the Mountains, Valleys, temples, and forest were spectacular. Cheap ice cream bars and cold sodas hit the spot. Recommend! English-speaking guide critical to get full context of what you are seeing.

The actual location of this temple is not in the right position according to the map ,but the position is this , (41°10'33.3"N 123°12'10.8"E) ,there is a bus route nearby with the entrance to the walking road on the corner of Langshan rd and Jiankang rd , walk up Jiankang rd , the entrance is up further .A tough walk up a steep road ,about an hour , there is a temple at the top and several other atractions , half way up the hill a track goes off to the right with a steep but short climb up through the bush to bring you out to the Temple itself , bring drinks and lunch ,especailly hot in the summer.These two roads are at the very southern end of Liaoyang city and end of the bus route .

Steps by step, an ancient and spiritual China is revealed for those who search for it. I recommend it during the autumn, end of october, after Golden Week (more empty and beautiful trees and landscapes).

羊湖沟的红叶属于那种藏在深山处很少人知道的地方,然而却美得异常动人,比景区的更增添了许多野性。不过看红叶的时间都非常冷了,睡村里的火炕是个不错的选择
