Active Temple by ancient City Wall and XuanWu Lake

Actively worshipped Buddhist temple is worth a visit, especially the vegetarian restaurant at the top of the complex, which also affords a great view of Xuan Wu Lake

I've been to quite a few temples in China now, but I really enjoyed this one. I saw many people praying, making wishes, and burning incense during my visit. It's fun to throw some coins and ring the gong. It's not necessarily different than other temples in any drastic way, but for some reason I found it more aesthetically pleasing... More

Jiming Temple is a great temple in Nanjing. The orange color of the building was really lovely, as I have never seen that color in Chinese architecture before. The temple ascends a tall hill, and at the top there is a pagoda. Along the way, they give you a stick of incense that you may use if you wish. One... More

This is a nice Buddhist temple that you can pay 10 RMB to visit. They will give you incense with entry. The pagoda is visible from a far and is very nice up close. We had the added benefit of snow on the roofs of the buildings.

If you like temples, this one is lovely. Many statues, and when you reach the top Vegetarian food is served in the cafe. The food is good and you have a view of the city, lake and city wall as you eat.

Temple is very nicely maintained, also good place for vegetarian food as well. There is a restuarant inside the temple as well as back side near city wall. City wall view is really nice to see from top.

This dark red, Ming style temple is built up the hillside in Nanjing. It has great views and an opportunity for great photography. The temple is clean and very interesting (after having been to many temples in China). It is definitely worth the visit. Very beautiful and we took many artistic photos.

The Jiming Temple is a standard urban Buddhist temple, an offshoot of the big Lama Temple in Beijing. Apparently all the monks are women, or so the guidebook says. It occupies a mount near the Xuanwu Lake and costs just 10 yuan to enter (incense included). So far so good. What makes this temple FANTASTIC for the secular visitor who... More
