The Zhao Jie Tem­ple


There are a num­ber of tem­ples sprin­kled around Chengdu city, and Zhao Jie, al­though not the most cen­trally lo­cated, is a spir­i­tual sanc­tu­ary not to be missed. It takes about an hour to get to, but it’s worth it for the au­then­tic­ity and dis­tinct ab­sence of tourist crowds. The cen­turies-old wooden struc­tures and pil­lars are lined with neat shrub­bery, gen­tly pac­ing monks and lin­ger­ing plumes of in­cense. Spend an af­ter­noon soak­ing up the peace­ful­ness and his­tory of the place, and en­joy­ing a cup of tea in the tra­di­tional tea­house. Open 8:00 AM – 6:00 PM. 333 Zhao Qing Lu, Qing Long Chang, Chenghua district.
