The temple is definitely worth seeing area. It's said that if you don't visit Foshan's Zu Miao, then you simply haven't seen Foshan. The temple is a magnificent example of ancient Chinese architecture. I recommend it for tourists and businessmen.

Normally I'd be bored visiting temples in China as they're all pretty much similar. However... Zu Miao is different as the Ip Man and Wong Fei Hong museums are all located in the same place. There are impressive kung-fu and lion dance performances that are held at the Wong Fei Hong museum. Definitely great cultural place to check out if... More

Visit the temple on a weekend. Free Cantonese opera and kung fu exhibition. Lion dance is a must. Well worth the Rmb20 entrance fee.
