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

Beautifully kept up temple, with many different areas to explore. It looked recently painted and looks excellent in pictures. There are many people that come in to pray or worship, so you can mingle with the locals. And it's a good place to spend a few hours walking around, taking in part of the Chinese culture.

Although much of this visit was the typical of any visit to a Chinese temple, I really enjoyed visiting the Hall of Buddhas and counting to a significant number (I chose my age) to help me find "my" Buddha. I recommend visiting with a Chinese-speaker, since without my friend I would not have know what to do, and she helped... More

This is a temple complex of several buildings, one with dozens of small arhat statues, and others with more extensive shrines and statuary. No photos are allowed within the buildings themselves, but you can take pictures in the grounds of the buildings. Unlike some temples, the smell of incense isn't overpowering, because burning is limited to only certain places. Since... More
