This is a sprawling temple complex set in a beautiful forest. It is wonderful to wander through the pavillions and find quiet little tucked-away places for contemplation.

About 45 min taxiride from the centre, but still "in the city". Big complex surrounded by old cinammon trees and bamboo forest, so shady even in hot summer, many ponds with fish and turtles, many temple buildings, three pagodas, lots of stone carvings, ancient pieces. Top temple with hundreds of golden/lacquered statues. Easy to walk around.

I went to Asoka Temple, Dist Ningbo, China while visiting China for business purpose in Dec'2007. On last day of my visit my host Mr.Lee asked me where I want to go before leaving China & I requested him to show me a Chinese Temple. He came to hotel at around 10:00 AM & selected the destination as Asoka temple... More
