After visiting the Leshan Giant Buddha, make your way to Wuyou Temple on Wuyou Mountain. Traverse the picturesque Haoshang Bridge, a shortcut to the temple over the river, and make the climb up the steps to the Wuyou Temple.

Built in the Tang Dynasty, the site consists of seven Buddhist palaces, all surrounded by lush trees. Featuring an ancient courtyard on the outside with various statues of the Buddhist pantheon inside, this well-preserved temple is a gem. Be sure to make note of the 500 Arhats Hall with its beautifully painted life-sized clay figures of 500 of the Buddha's disciples. Though the stairs up might seem like a workout (it takes about 30 minutes to reach the temple), the views afforded at this height are worth the walk.

Practical Info

This temple is rarely crowded, as many visitors simply go to see the Giant Buddha and then leave. There is a bit of a climb up the hill, but the temple at the top is serene and peaceful. Entry into Wuyou Temple is included in the price for visiting the Grand Buddha and is open from 7:30am to 4:30pm.
