The temple itself is a bit of a let down, as there really isn't much left. There are a couple of halls and the rather nice pagoda. It is a pity that you can't go inside the pagoda, but it is worth a look. For only 5 rmb, it won't break the bank.

Unfortunately I could not enter the Pagoda as it was to late at night. It's amazing how the modern CHina has built around this pagoda, without taking anyway its identity away. At night the pagoda is gently lighted and offers an unbeliveable show.

We were going there because of the good reviews and we cannot share the good experiences at all. Basically it´s only this temple in the middle of the city and after watching it for 2 minutes, there was nothing left to do. The entrance fee was 5RMB/Person, so really cheap. If you pass this place, you can have a look,... More

This Temple was recommended to us as being serene to visit. The grounds are spotlessly clean and it is very peaceful for meditation the trees are superb. The charge to enter is only 5 RMB

This small and clean temple is located at Liurong Road, Guangzhou City. Admission fee is RMB5 per person. This temple is more than 1500 years old. At the entrance of the temple, you will be greeted by the Buddha statute. There are many others religious statutes within the temple compound. As you stroll within the temple, you will notice 6...

I enjoyed visiting the temple and it is important to be there with a guide that can explain the symbols and meanings. The pagoda is closed for climbing but photogenic.

For RMB 10 (~1.5 USD), it is worth stopping in to see the temple and pagoda (flower pagoda is pictured here). Originally built in 537, it has been rebuilt several times, and the name has also been changed several times. During holidays and festivals, it can be quite busy but that only adds to the experience. We were walking the... More

Entrance fee was RMB10 for adults and free for elderly. Place is smaller than expected and finished visiting it in 15 mins. Only special thing is the pagoda but no entry is allowed.
