Taking the bus no.10 at the last stop. Lots of people are having the good picnic, fishing, and camping. Also if you keep walking up the hill, you will be able to see the temple at there, don't miss to pay a visit there.

This is a relatively small but authentic Old Temple surrounded by peaceful park like grounds. Do not miss going up the bell Tower,you can strike the bell but it will cost you.

This is an interesting place but getting there and surviving the crowds takes a fair amount of stamina. Maybe I was there on a bad day, but the road to the summit was gridlocked for an hour with tourist buses. Finally I walked to the top to discover that there was no parking available for the extra buses so they... More

Half an hour away from the city, you can get here by many of the city buses or by taxi. Lots of steps up the hill, with places to rest. There is a funicular for those who prefer riding up the hill. Camellias were in bloom - gardens were wonderful and ponds were peaceful. Temple and bell tower bot to... More

The entire complex is quite beautiful, but if you are here and on your own you might miss the 'golden' temple first time you see it, we certainly did. The temple, once you realize that it is made out of tons and tons of copper/bronze is very beautiful and impressive, especially the interior roof and the Buddha statue inside, but... More

Great time to visit this peaceful mountain park because the camellias are in full bloom. Will probably last another two or three weeks. I've been here several times before, but always find it tranquil and relaxing. A fine getaway. Logistics are easy: It's at the terminus of several bus lines. #47, #10, #71 and others. Three or four local eateries... More

The golden temple was incredibly made of bronze. There are patches that have for years and years been in contact with millions of visitors that look shining like gold indeed. It is incredible how coppersmiths in those days could build the whole temple with such metallic element.

There are plenty of woods surrounding this temple which makes this a great getaway from the city. The temple itself is nice, but the hike and surroundings make this worth the investment.

So many temples so see. A great place to spend half or full day in the nature. This parc is really amazing. To be seen absolutely.
