Busted the temple with my wife, it was an amazing place!!! So many people around and so many steps to climb. Wonderful ambience and full of positive energy. Close to the lake and to the city wall, a great way to see this part of the city

Having never seen a buddhist temple before this was an interesting visit. There is an admission ticket of 10 yuan. The temple is built on the slope of a hill, so it's pretty picturesque. There are some steps to climb, but they should be no trouble for most. Xuanwu lake is nearby so one can combine a visit to the... More

Temple complex, built on the side of a hill. Photogenic place with interesting angles. Many steps to climb. Too many. Within walking distance from the XuanWu Park and the City Walls.

It is only a short metro ride away from the centre of Nanjing, but the area here is completly different, quite and green. The temple itself is worth going to see. Not over crowded like many other attractions in China.

The temple is definitely worth going to. It's in a quiet little area in the middle of downtown Nanjing and is somewhat of an oasis in the middle of the city. From here you can walk to the downtown area and also there's the lake nearby. Overall the only knock on this place is the size (ifs small) but you... More

We visited the temple after finding the larger vegetarian restaurant at street level closed between lunch and dinner time. The smaller restaurant inside the temple remained open, and appeared to be served by the same kitchen. Lucky for us! The smaller restaurant was sited at the high point of the temple grounds, with excellent views of the city walls and... More
