Kunming Things to Do: 196 reviews and 389 photos
The Temple of Perfection and Success (Yuantong Si), situated in the north of the city and just to the south of the zoo of the same name, was built during the Tang period (618-907), rebuilt between 1301 and 1320, and subsequently restored on several occasions during the next few centuries. An octagonal pavilion situated in a square lake is the main highlight and was particularly picturesque in the spring sunshine when I was there. In the main temple, the Hall of Perfection and Success (Yuantong Baodian), there are some 14th century Buddhist statues and two Ming period (1368-1644) dragons made from coloured clay which are coiled around two pillars.
