A flamboyant mix of Ming and Qing architecture embellish one the most important Buddhist temples in the region, 1,200-year-old Yuantong Temple. A gentle descent amidst lush cypress trees leads to the picturesque scenery of highly decorated temples, small bridges, and a fusion of vibrant colors. In the midst of the green pond lies the temple shrine with a golden Buddha statue. See devotees bringing incense and candles while the sounds of monks echo through the complex. The pond thrives with multitudes of little turtles and frogs inhabiting the water. Use our Kunming tour itinerary planner to arrange your visit to Yuantong Temple and other attractions in Kunming.
