    Palace Performance

    I arrived at the main gate of the Mountain Resort Main Palace at about 8am and walked through, after buying my ticket, and saw a small crowd gathered inside a small courtyard watching some girls dancing in traditional costumes to loud music. I think the dancing was some kind a ceremony to welcome to Emperor to the Mountain Resort as a guy and woman wearing some impressive looking clothes then walked down from behind where the dancers had performed and were greeted by another guy. I have no idea how often this performance happens or what it means but it was a nice surprise, all the same.

    Puning Temple - Musical Ceremony

    by Willettsworld Written Aug 29, 2009

    These guys started playing some kind of musical ceremony everytime someone came up the steps to the Mayahana Hall and gave them money. I have no idea what the significance is, though!

    Open: 8am-5.30pm. Admission: RMB50
    Take bus 6 from the Mountain Resort.
