Dongyue Temple Reviews & Ratings

  • The temple depicts many departments of hell... and 'surreal' is not a strong enough word. For example, there is a "department for 15 ways to implement death" and you just have to see it for yourself. Well worth the trip, and I'll be bringing visitors here again.

  • Very interesting temple.

  • This Temple is for King Dongyue and his family. It has many statues and stands out against surrounding modern buildings. The ticket is ¥10(the East entrance). If you want to hire a tourist guide, you can buy tickets at the West entrance, ¥40. The WC is at the rear of the Temple.

  • My favourite temple in Beijing, lots to see and there's a mall not too far for lunch ;)

  • This is one of the most interesting temples in Beijing, interesting depictions of Daoist hell and awesome steles.
