My cousin took us here on our weekend here at Xiamen. It was a nice place filled with visitors and pilgrims who wish to pray and also to see the beauty of nature and the temples. Can be crowded on Sundays but it was worth the crowd.

We thought we would just stop by the temple and check it out. After about 3 hours, we finally left. The temple has some great places to take pictures and some beautiful relics. The best is the hike to the top of the mountain. Its a real hike, but the beautiful view of the city from the top is amazing!... More

The temple is rich in history. From a distance in the bus, the temple does have some grandeur and beauty. However, that beauty was all dashed the moment you step into the temple entrance. The temple is crowded with people and the smoke from the incense can get quite suffocating, The building is also not well maintained. The paint is... More

I really love this temple since I'm a buddhist. If you go there just go to the temple first walk through the gate and you will see so many wonderful and respectful of buddhist's angle and buddhas. They're very beautiful.

Beautifully restored Temple at the bottom, one serious climb to the top for a decent view. Personally, I enjoyed seeing the temple, but the climb virtually straight up the 600 foot "mountain" could have been avoided.

Popular temple located in the hill next to Xiamen University. Very nice ground and well kept. Some parts of the temple is under renovation when we visited. Except for some areas reserved for the monks, visitors can freely move around and could even hike to the top of the hill overlooking the university and the sea. 1 to 2 hours... More
