As the thing is leaning over I was told you cant go inside as its now too dangerous, but there are plenty of things to see around it anyway. If you like taking photos of Buddha and other Buddhist type statues then this is the place for you. Hope you like the smell of incense burning because you will get... More

Six Banyan Temple is easy to go from the subway with a scooter. Around the temple lot of beggar in rags. There, we are directly deeply in Buddhism ambient, a lot of cultural relics, wonderful architecture. Important to see!

My husband, toddler son, and I visited this temple recently. There was a small entrance fee, maybe 10 yuan per adult? It was cool and quiet. We enjoyed seeing the monks, who in turn were very kind to my son. It's a little difficult to find. Lonely Planet suggests using the B exit from the subway, but B Exit doesn't... More

This Flower Pagoda is from year 1097 is a beautiful architectural gem situated in the Six Banyan TreeTemple area. This is a place for prayer and solitude, crowded with Chinese locals who want their blessings from Buddha, leaving tokens and some food and queuing to burn the first joss stick. The Flower Pagoda is rich with Buddhist relics and a... More

This is a peaceful little temple, popular with locals coming to give offerings of incense and flowers. It's nice to get away from the crowds for a while, but the pagoda is closed off to the public.

Nice to see a quiet place in a city with a lot of noise and people everywhere. Interesting pagodas and lovely Buddhist shrines and statues.

It was a little hard to find as my guidebook said " Exit B", but there is no exit B at GuanYuanQian Metro! It turned out to be exit I2, go straight ahead for 2 blocks and turn right into LiuRong Rd. A typical small temple with a large pagoda, and three quite impressive bronze Buddha figures. Obviously popular with... More

If you think that you can enter the tower which we did you will be disappointed. There are several (4) halls with bid Budda statutes but that's all...

I'm a huge fan of traditional Chinese culture and this place was just fantastic. It was well-maintained and offered lots of opportunities. The environment is clean and relaxing and the attending monks were courteous and allowed us to photograph the temple at out leisure.

The surrounds and temples are nice and the Pagoda is impressive. It was jsut unfortunate that it wa spouring with... More
