I've visited quite a few temples in China and well once you have visited one you have an idea how the rest looks like and feels like... this is a nice and well maintained temple with all the statues and other Buddha related worshipping. Just like all other famous temples there is a sea of people and no photo taking... More

If you´re visiting Wuhan this should be you´re priority visit. Highly worth visiting! Gaiyuan Temple is huge, and there is much to see, so you should definitely spend some time here. Tickets are not expensive, but you´re not allowed to take pictures of the impressive Buddha statues inside the temples, but there is also much else to see. Everything is... More

Note: I also posted this review for "Guiyuan Temple" as it appears to be the same thing as this I had a great experience at this temple but it was most likely because I went with two locals who explained everything to me. I haven't seen other people mention these things but because they are what made the visit fun... More

Simply a wonderful temple of Buddhists where you see people's belief has not changed with changing society.

This is the Buddhist temple, other than the Yellow Crane Pagoda, you have to visit when you are in Wuhan. It is located in the industrial district of Han Yang. The main entrance of the temple appears to be quite humble. You need to pay an entrance fee to enter the temple. Inside the compound in front of the main... More

Overall I really enjoyed visiting this temple. There are quite a few buildings, but the most interesting one had 500 gold Buddhas. Each of them was different, with different meanings. No photos are allowed inside the temples, but they are allowed outside. We went late in the day and there was almost no one else there, which was nice. Worth... More

It is wonderful to see Chinese people paying homage to and practicing Buddhism. Also, mixed with a display of Taoist ministers. The sheer numbers of golden Bodhisattvas and amazingly beautiful protectors are dazzling together with practicing monks and lay people. A very human side of China!! Do go across the street to the Chinese vegetarian restaurant. It is the best... More

This is a large temple. What I liked most was the famous Lohan Hall, with countless large gold-plated statues, each one very different and alive (though they are not that well lit). Parts of the compound are under heavy renovation, which is surely needed but a bit frustrating for tourists. Not the top attraction in Wuhan if one has very... More
