Things to Do in Taiyuan
The Twin Pagoda Temple, built sometime during the Ming dynasty, is certainly worth a visit. The temple sports twin pagodas, each 13 stories high and 53 metres tall, made entirely of bricks and stone. Take time as well to visit the Jin Temple, which can be traced back to the Western Zhou dynasty. As you walk through the temple’s imperial-type garden, you’re bound to be impressed by its wonderful mix of ancient trees and decorative pavilions and bridges.
Taiyuan Travel Tips
The city has some interesting local products. Duanmu inkstone, for example, consists of three different coloured inks, the stone originating from the nearby Duanmu Mountain. Taiyuan polished lacquer ware is another speciality. Made from wood coated with natural lacquer and then decorated with a mix of painted flowers and birds, several layers of highly burnished lacquer are then applied to create a delicate finish to products such as jewellery cases and screens.
