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.

This is a nice, clean and serene temple to visit in Guangzhou. I went there as part of a tour so only spent a small amount of time there. The grounds were very nice and peaceful. Very good architecture and a nice place for contemplation. Worth a visit.

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...
