It s amazing to visit a place with the original construction and so many stories. There was a part under renovation, but other parts was ok to visit. If u have time, it´s a place easy to get and quick to see.

On my visit to Guangzhou, I decide to do some sight seeing & this place appeared to be a bit traditional religious site. But its just an ordinary pagoda & nothing really great about it. Located at a 10 minute walk from the metro (Take exit I2 & walk straight & continue to go straight crossing the signals. Turn right... More

Any fan of historic temples and Chinese architecture will surely enjoy a visit to this timely and still active Buddhist temple and shrines! You will enter in to the Temple complex and be in awe of the Liurong pagoda! It's stunning and very well maintained! Unfortunately you will not be able to enter the actual pagoda but you will be...

The pagoda is amaizing, lots of Chinese there, praying, in meditation. Location is very good - not so far from city centre! Must visit!

For under the price of $1 usd, the site offers visually stunning ancient architecture in the pagoda and surrounding buildings where you can feast your eyes, or if you are so inclined, give a prayer and make a donation or offering of incense (you can buy at the little shop before the exit). It's in the city, so you can... More

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

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
