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 Daxingshan Temple

As one of the oldest Buddhist temples in China, Daxingshan Temple is suitable the southern suburb of Xi’an City. It is founded in the period 265-289AD. The history can be traced back to the third century, at that time it was named Zunshan Temple. During Sui Dynasty, it was restored and was given the present name.

During Sui Dynasty, Buddhism prevailed widely in Chang’an (Xi’an City’s earlier name). In 761AD, the Indian monks Shanwuwei, Jingangzhi, and Bukongseng, named “Three Bachelors in Kaiyuan Period” remained there to translate the sutras and promulgate the Buddhist doctrines up to over 500 pieces. Since then it gradually became one of the three temples wholly used for translating sutras together with Ci’en Temple and Jianfu Temple.

However, most of buildings were destroyed during 841-845. The current Daxingshan Temple is the result of the large-scale restorations in 1955 and 1983. Qing-style architectural features are the main attraction which is made up of the Mountain Gate, Devajara Hall, Great Hall, Bell and Drum Towers and so on.
