Area of Contrasts

This area is one of great contrasts and is worthwhile to appreciate not only the history of Buddhism in China but also the architecture of the wonderful building [old and new].

This is a must visit if you understand Chinese. The free tour guide explains very thoroughly the story of how the first monk went to India and brought back the teaching of Buddhism and how this tower was used for him to translate and store the sutras.

We visited the park near the pagoda width was great for night photos and found a whole special nightlife going on at the park. So many people dancing in different groups and different dance styles. You could just jump in and join without feeling weird. The mall near by had the most amazing LED ceiling with ever changing spectacular scenes.... More

This is a great place to pay a visit and learn a little bit about the Buddhist faith. There are volunter guides to take you through and explain. Just be prepared for a little sales at the end.
