Lanzhou's White Cloud Temple

Lanzhou's White Cloud Temple

The intricate stone carvings at the White Cloud Temple on the banks of the Yellow River in Lanzhou are astounding for their delicacy and craftsmanship. The rest of the temple is similarly an artisan’s treat of wooden architecture and bright colours, and well worth a wander while walking the riverfront. And you’ll surely notice the temple’s namesake clouds; the monks keep the white incense pumping out and the mystical vibe seeping through this ancient Silk Road town.
