Handan, located in the south of Hebei, is an ancient city with a history of three thousand years. Handan was the second capital of the State of Zhao during the Warring States Period and there are many cultural figures in the historical record who hail from here. At the same time, its natural landscape is not lacking in any way. The undulating stretches of the Taihang Mountains and Lake Jingniang, with its emerald green waters, imbue this ancient city with an air of spiritual grace. The nearby ancient city of Guangfu and the Wahuang Palace are also historical sites well worth a visit.

baostarPersonally feel good! Probably because of personal preference for humanities! Some things can still be seen here! The seven scenic spots booked by Ctrip were refunded. It was troublesome to get the tickets. Obviously, I followed the prompts to navigate to the tourist center parking lot, but the result was still far behind! The visitor center parking lot and the visitor center are two different things! I was too lazy to move, so I bought an annual card, one card, 88 yuan! 7 attractions cover 6 and many other attractions! It feels more worthwhile, anyway, it will take some time, you can use it slowly! Ganlu Temple, Hongji Bridge, Wu Yuxiang's Former Residence, Yang Luchan's Former Residence, Guangfu Government Office, these are still worth seeing, Zhao Bin Tai Chi Garden (now called Fu Gongzong Yuan Tai Chi Garden) Fu Gong Memorial Temple, I personally think it doesn't matter if I go!

M22***06After the eleventh, there are few people coming even on Sundays. It is quiet and clean. It is suitable for lovers to come here to talk about love, listen to the wind, look at the mountains, talk about life, and have ideal words. The steps in the lacquered woods hovered up, and the wind rustled the leaves and it was very quiet. There is a temple not far away, and the sound of the Buddha reverberates in the valley, so I feel peaceful and comfortable! Turning the mountain, there is a People’s Liberation Army field hospital on a flat and open mountainside. Watching the martyrs sacrifice their lives in exchange for today's prosperous years, sudden respect! Going down the stairs and returning to the entrance, it takes about three or four hours to go back and forth. There are still several attractions that have not been visited.

Xiangtangshan Grottoes
232 Reviews
爱上蓝天白云Xiangtangshan Grottoes, also known as Xiangtangsi Grottoes, is located in Handan, Hebei Province. It is known as the fifth largest grotto in China. It was excavated in the Northern Qi era. It has been added in subsequent generations. There are 16 existing caves with more than 4,000 Buddha statues, although they are not as good as others. The four famous caves are famous, majestic and magnificent, but they also have their own characteristics, and their landscapes are worth visiting and admiring. This attraction is relatively small and not very well-known, so it is more suitable for self-driving or chartered tours. Nanxiangtang has almost no landscape, so you have to go directly to Beixiangtang. The grotto is on the mountainside and you need to climb the mountain. The ticket is 60 yuan, which feels a bit expensive. It takes up to two hours to play, so some water and snacks are enough to go up the mountain, and the light is best in the morning and evening.
