tips and insights


A 10,000 meter (6 mile) wall surrounds the core area of the resort.

Eight Outer Temples

The splendid group of Buddhist temples collectively called the Eight Outer Temples lies just north of the imperial palace.


These religious structures aesthetically sit in a semi-circle on mountain slopes overlooking the valley.

Minority group influences

Each of the seven (one was destroyed) temples partially reflects the architectural style of a specific minority group.
