If you have time go see the temple....if you walk through from the wall entrance then you can walk down the temple on your way out and not have to climb up all those stairs! ;-D
When visiting Nanjing this is a "must see" attraction. When first arriving at Jiming Temple it is very unassuming. It is in midst of urban development so the expectations are low. When first entering, we find that no photos are allowed in the individual Buddha Temples. But, it is ok to take pictures on the property from the exterior. As... More
The Temple and the surrounding area, is ideal for photos buffs, and holds enough interest for children as well. There is a small restaurant located at the top, perfect for tea. Make sure to purchase your incense to pray with. You will see monks in their traditional clothing, through out your visit.
I wasn't expecting much but after all, it was a nice temple, very zen, but the most exciting moment for me was to walk up the stairs until the 8th floors of the Pagoda. From up there, you will see a nice view on Xuanwu Lake + the City walls + the Skyline of Nanjing. I had a nice time... More
The Jiming Temple is a very renowned Buddhist temple in Nanjing. The entrance seemed to be small but this is a large Buddhist temple complex. There is an entry fee of 10 RMB.

this temple is close to a part of the city wall and the xuhuanwu - walking distance. This was the first temple inside China which I have visited and I am coming qiute often since then. You will have a good surrounding view and it is a really peacefull place in the city center.
Inside the temple complex there is not much but a few typical Chinese pavillions with a single Buddha image, head for the connecting walls and see the best views of the temples and to get the best photos there also.
I'm personally a fan of buddhism and enjoy seeing the different temples around China, but unless you really enjoy that sort of thing, don't go out of your way. There are tons of awesome pictures, paintings, and sculptures to see. Even see a golden Buddha over 10 feet tall. It's not something worth going out of your way for but... More
This is a nice temple that also allows you to see the City Wall. They give you incense to burn as part of your entry fee. The view from the City Wall is gorgeous and we enjoyed our visit to the Temple.
Very beautiful and interesting temple with many buildings and a good restaurant located outside just besides the wall entrance side. Located at the side of the wall such that you can actually go to the top of the wall from the temple. You have to pay the fee anyway. Be careful, there seems to be only one point to get... More
