It's really nice to see a temple between modern buildings. It's not so old but it is has so many details inside.

Very majestic, strange setting as location is amongst tall office blocks. Could easily spend a couple of hours here. Seems to be a popular location for prayers. In the main hall, sits the silver Buddha.

Beautiful old temple made new after destruction during cultural revolution. Despite concrete base beautifully done with wooden structure and massive Buddha's. You have to experience this and take some time to sit down and enjoy.

Usual entrance fee is RMB 20-30 but during Chinese New Year or various other auspicious days in the Lunar Calendar, they hike up the prices to RMB 100 or more. Amazing architecture and they have continuously expanded and renovated the temple (clearly with all... More
