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

A rmb10 entrance fee also buys you three incense sticks. You would proceed to climb up several flight of steps punctuated with small praying halls to the left and right. At the top, one would light and offer the incense. There is a vegetarian restaurant with nice views, and a posh looking gift shop. For people who visit other temples... More

Jiming Temple has reputedly been the site of a temple for some 1400 years, but most of what you see today dates back onto to the 1990s. A huge fire ripped through the site in the 1970s, destroying most of the old wooden halls. That doesn't mean there's no reason to come here, however. The temple has been fairly sensitively... More

Enjoyed the climb up and around this temple and nunnery near the Xuanwu park. Had a lovely bowl of noodles and tea in the restaurant. Unfortunately couldn't climb the pagoda.

A temple different than usual at least for foreigners/westerners. I enjoyed the visit. Although many shops exist at all levels of the temple area it is worth visiting, you can pop in and out of them if not in the mood (if there was communication in english it would be better). Also apart from the buddist statues, photos, sculptures of... More
