Hohot 呼和浩特 Travel Guide

Hohot Overview

Hohot is the capital of Inner Mongolia province and it is likely that any trip that involves Inner Mongolia will also involve a stay in Hohot. Founded by the Mongolian ruler, Altan Khan, in the 16th Century in recent years the city has expanded considerably but, despite rampant development, there are still many temples to see as well as being the gateway to Inner Mongolia’s grasslands which are particularly popular with Beijingers escaping the summer heat.

Top Attractions in Hohot

The Temple of the Five Pagodas was built in 1732 with architecture very similar to that of Indian temples. In its walls there are more than 1,500 figures of Buddha. The Buddhist Da Zhao Temple was constructed in 1579 at the same time the city was founded and is the oldest remaining structure and still a place of active worship. For those with an interest in nomadic lifestyle or dinosaur fossils, the Inner Mongolian Museum is the place for you as the province is rich in both.
