Qingyang Palace Tours

Qingyang Palace
An early Tang Dynasty classic, Qingyang Palace (also known as the Green Ram Temple) is considered to be one of the oldest and most important Taoist temples in all of China due to its location near the boyhood home of Lao-Tzu, the father of Taoism. Much of the palace was restored during the Qing Dynasty.
 
The Basics
For Sichuan visitors with a deep interest in Taoism, a trip to Qingyang Palace is a great way to either pass the afternoon or reflect on the ancient religion with a warm cup of tea and a comfortable seat from right within the walls of its source.
 
Many sightseeing tours include a visit to the temple, along with other popular Chengdu attractions, such as Renmin Park, Wuhou Temple, Jinli Street, and the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding, depending on the option chosen.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • The palace is a must-visit for spiritual travelers and history buffs.
  • Give yourself about one hour to tour the temple grounds.
  • Wear comfortable shoes suitable for walking over uneven surfaces.
 
How to Get There
Qingyang Palace is situated in northwest Chengdu. The easiest way to get there is to take one of several public buses to Qing Yang Gong Station. From there, it’s a short walk to the entrance.
 
When to Get There
The temple is open from morning to late afternoon daily throughout the year, though the best time to visit is during spring (March to June) or fall (September to November) when the weather isn’t too hot and the grounds aren't too crowded.
 
The Goats of Qingyang Palace
Local legend says that Qingyang Palace got the nickname Green Ram Temple from the pair of bronze goat statues flanking the altar of Sanqing Hall. One of the goats is recognizable for what it is, but the other boasts the ears of a mouse, nose of an ox, tiger claws, dragon horns, and a snake’s tail, among other features. Both statues are believed to have been taken from Beijing during the Qing Dynasty.
