Although it is apparently funded by Hong Kong businessmen, this site is well worth the visit. Not only one of the largest Buddhas you will see, but all the other attractions including the animated "birth of buddha" fountain/statue add to the fun. Avoid public holidays or times when discount tickets are on sale.

Very impressive. The Buddha is some 289 feet tall (9th tallest Buddha in the world). This is a hugh space

2 Words: SIMPLY MINDBLOWING. Take the Bullet train from Shanghai at 7 AM in the morning to arrive in Wuxi at 7:45 AM. Another 45 min drive gets you directly to the Lingsham Buddha attraction. You can stand this free standing structure a mile away on your approach. Located at the southwest tip of Wuxi and on the Majishan Peninsula... More

Lingshan is located at the east of Wuxi, so if your main goal is to visit this place better to choose your hotel near it. At the entrance there is no clear mark directing you to ticket office and you coould not find many english speaking people there. When you enter main entrance you should turn right find the booth...

Was treated to a visit of the Buddhist temple at Wuxi whilst on a business trip in the area Thoroughly entertaining even if you have no interest in Buddhism. A scenic drive to reach the area and then an collection of impressive architectural accomplishments. I am guessing the crowds can very depending on the day of the week, time of... More

Well worth the visit. The buddhas and the whole culture is very interesting. The temple is over the top opulent and very beautiful. The mocking children at the laughing buddha is not to be missed. The whole of it makes one wonder about this religion too. Be prepared to walk a lot or hop om a mini train.

Lingshan Buddhist Scenic Spot is a newly built attraction of Wuxi. It's a commercial tourist scenic spot which consists of some ancient buildings/architecture combined with some newly built ones. It has recently been transformed into a park so one might say 'fakish', but does have some nice views and buildings if you don't mind the steep entrance price and a... More

A Chinese/Buddhist theme park. You can spend the whole day admiring impressive sculptures like the Grand Buddha and the 9 Dragons fountain, visit several museums and enjoy a live show and music. The Brahma Palace is by far the best manmade place I've seen so far, not only in China but in my entire life. This gem is a perfect... More
