We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Xian Straw Hut Temple

Xian Straw Hut Temple

As a significant tourist site of Xi’an City, Straw Hut Temple was found in 1855 in Tang Dynasty. The temple was a thatch-roofed house, so it won the name of Caotang Temple, meaning Straw Hut Temple. Situated in Huxian Country, the temple is a very sacred place for the Buddhists. Kumarajiva, an glorious Buddhist master interpreted Buddhist scriptures and transformed sutras from Sanskrit to Chinese in the temple.

Xian Straw Hut TempleWalking into the Straw Hut Temple, the Kumarajiva Dagoba or valuable works will catch your eye. The Baohui Buddhist Master Preaching Inscription is the original script of the great calligraphlist Liugongquan.

There is a well, one of the eight famous scenic features in Shaanxi Province sends out mists at times. It is said by the ancient that inside the well there is a stone ,and a snack lies on the stone. The mist is made by the snack, then travel over the countryside. However, the scientific cause maybe the geothermal vapor. When the vapor is out of the well, it is mixed with the smoke of incense over the temple. Later, over the well built an elegant pavilion and was named “Misty Well”.

The temple is open from 8am to 6 pm.
