Badachu Park

The name Badachu means Eight Great Sites, and refers to the eight Buddhist temples and monasteries scattered across Cuiwei, Pingpo and Lushi hills at the foot of Beijing's Western Hills Scenic Area. Located along the outskirts of Beijing, it was restored during the 1980's and has since become a famous tourist destination.

Badachu Park is an attractive place to visit all year round. It has a pleasant temperate climate, remaining cool in summer and warm in winter. Visitors can stroll from one temple to another, enjoying the beautiful scenery and admiring the arbor and rare ancient trees. Some of these trees have been standing for over 6 centuries, but their roots and branches are still strong and in good shape. In September and October, when the leaves are turning red, crowds of tourists come to climb the mountains. You may also take a cable-car to the top of the hill and feast your eyes on the beautiful view from the mountain peak.

Three sites in Badachu Park are most worthy of a visiting. Lingguang Temple, is famous for stupa which stands majestically, the golden fish pond where the beautiful brocade carps swim delightedly, the heart sutra wall and arhats wall present splendid sight. Dabei Temple is noted for the lifelike eighteen arhats in the Hall of Mahavira which were molded by the famous sculptor Liu Yuan living in Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368). Xiangjie Temple, which is neatly laid out, have two steles inscribed the writings by the emperors Kangxi, Qianlong and Jiaqing.
