    White Horse Temple

    by yeikloen Written Jan 15, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is suppose to be the first buddhist temple in China, dated since the 1st century, when a Tang Dynasty monk traveled to Afghanistan and met 2 indian monks. Both monks were invited back to Luoyang with buddhist scriptures and statues in 2 white horse.

    Adjoining to this temple there is a pagoda, where you stand about 20feet away and clap you will hear a sound similar to a frog.

    Longmen Caves

    by herzog63 Updated Oct 3, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You can tell from my Luoyang site that, at least for me, the town is about the Buddhist caves! The day I went it was pretty dreary! Rain and snow mixture all day long. But I did enjoy the caves! Louyang was established in 1200 BC and has been the capital of 10 Dynasties! Luoyang is one of the best Historical sites in all of China. At the time I didn't realize it and I just spent a passing few hours here. I should have given it a couple of days worth of exploring the caves.

    Wangcheng Park - Zoo

    by ChuckG Written Mar 25, 2012

    The zoo at Wangcheng park is pretty extensive. Some don't like it as it is not lush and too ecofriendly but kids love it and the animals seem well taken care of.

    Historic Area

    by ChuckG Written Mar 25, 2012

    A small piece of historic Luoyang has been kept or rebuilt and his worth the walk. It is very narrow and small but gives a glimpse of the pre 1950s Luoyang.

    Luopu Park along the Luo river is a very nice walk and quiet sight along the river. There was a lot of water when I went there, scary !

    Luoyang TV Tower

    by ChuckG Written Mar 25, 2012

    The tallest tower in Luoyang and one of the tallest in the world. It's worth the visit as there is a nice park around it but unfortunately, it looks closed and quasi-abandoned when I went there.

    There used to be a revolving restaurant inside Closed entrance The tv tower with the main police station in front

    The Old City

    by bhemak Written Aug 5, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    That China you imagined, this is it. Narrow alleys, traditional buildings, and people selling all sort of replica antiques. Just wander around and maybe see the brick pagoda in the Southeast corner.

    Longmen Grottoes

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Budhist carvings from 600-1000 AD, all on a bluff next to a river. I went on a nice day in the summer on the weekend and it still wasn't too crowded. I could have skipped the replica temple.
