There are many temples throughout Asia and China and I would not rank this among the best of them. The temple itself is fairly small and uneventful. Picture taking is mostly prohibited inside the temple. The statue in the picture is noteworthy and located near a large, newer pagoda with no access to anything except the ground floor with limited... More

Great place! Lunch at the Service Center is a must! Make sure you go the the 500 Buddha's Hall and count your age from a statue you choose to your fortune Buddha.

The highlight visit to Guiyuan temple is the room with the several hundreds of Lohans. Besides this, the temple is just an average Buddhist temple with the large statues of Buddha: in fact, the statues inside the temple are not that impressive either. In the back side of the temple, there is a large statue of Guangying Buddha that is... More

It was beautiful traditional Chinese style temple. The singature of this temple is Guanyin statue what is a "must" to see when you visit Wuhan. Other than Guanyin statue, this temple also has many hall of Chinese gods and godesses. One hall what appriciate me was the shall what show about Shaolin history.

It is beautiful, don't get me wrong. There are wonderful things to see in this temple. It is one of the biggest temples in Wuhan and attracts lots of visitors, especially on certain festival days (I would highly discourage folks from going during those times if you can figure out when they will be as its simply packed.) I didn't... More

The entire experience to Guiyuan was an extremely unpleasant one which began by the fact that this was a fee paying attraction. I am a Buddhist and it is totally against our principles to charge a fee to enter our temple. I think we should welcome all with open arms to have a chance to visit one of our temples!... More

You pay to get into this small crowded place full of screaming children and people who love to spit. You'll find more people spitting on things than anything interesting about this place.

There are people selling incense sticks at the entrance of the temple. They would tell you it's much cheaper than incense sticks sold inside. The truth is you can never make use of the incense sticks bought outside. Coz once you step in the temple, a woman will collect any incense sticks that you bring in and give you 3... More
