This was such a cool place to see

This is such a wonderful place to see and is a must if you are in the city. There is such great history, but just take your time and enjoy its majesty.

The cherry blossom on the road just in front of the Jiming Temple is a very good place to see beautiful blossom in spring time. However, it is so popular, so, many many people come here on weedend. So, suggest you guys to experience the beauty of cherry blossom during weekdays. It is definitely worth to visit.

It's located in a very nice area, I believe it's nicer if you walk through the back instead of the front entrance, that way you get to see Xuanwu lake, front entrance is nice if it's cherry blossom season. 10rmb includes incense for you to burn in the top.

My parents are vegetarian and came for a visit a few months back. So I took them to this temple. It's of decent size. There's a bit of a hike up. The admission fee comes with incense that you can burn and leave a little prayer. Then there's a tower that was closed for renovation, but you can walk around... More

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.

Easy to find, everyone knows it and you can see it. Lots people there and some good views, albeit views from city wall or top of Intercon better
