Hike up to the tower on the hill behind. As with most chinese religious sites, you will pay for entrance. However, it seems that there are actual worshipers rather than a museum setting.

If you have some time to kill in Wuhan this is worth a visit. Not only does hit have a lot of historical value as a Buddhist monastery and place of worship but it is a very active worship site and expanding rapidly. Buildings are full of interesting shrines and images and the central turtle pond is intriguing.

This is actually a sprawling complex of a number of temples and associated buildings. We spent close to an hour here walking around with our local guide who was able to point out the more important features. Fortunately the day we were there it was neither crowded nor hot, because it would have been far less pleasant in those conditions... More

There are multiple temples in this complex. For a small fee you can ring the large bronze bell, and write on a prayer tablet to add to the large rack. After choosing the number of the Lohan which corresponds to your age, go around the corner to purchase a small metal souvenir which includes your fortune. The site's official gift... More

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.
