I'm travelling to foshan since 2007 for business, and every trip, I always come to this temple at least once. It's a nice place to come and get away from the busy streets. The dragon show is also a plus.

Most important temple to visit in Foshan. It's located conveniently in the middle of city, so easy to reach. I would recommend as a top local attraction if you like to see some lion dance and history of Foshan.

Situated right behind Marco Polo Hotel. Houses the Zu Miao Temple, martial arts museum and the main hall for the lion dance. Entry is CNY 20. Definitely worth a visit!

One of the oldest surviving temples in Guangdong province, Zumiao Temple is easily accessible from the Zumiao Metro station and is doable in under a couple of hours. There is the ubiquitous traditional Chinese lion dance performances every day (I think three or four shows each afternoon) as well as Cantonese opera during the weekends which is certainly something different...

This temple is located right in the middle of Foshan, near the Metro Station. It is a lovely place, full of typical things one can find in all the temples in China: gods' statues, altars, inscriptions, etc. Nevertheless, it is nothing special. The entrance fee is about 16 RMB (holiday) and it usually closes at 6pm.

Very nice, old buildings, cosy atmosphere, beautiful bonsai trees! You can experience the Chinese culture on a wide scale! You don't want miss the dragon-dance! (Only twice a day!)

Zu Miao in Chinese actually meant Ancestral Temple and it is the place for locals to worship their ancestors. Giant statues of guardians and gods were lined along the entrance to the ancestral hall and gives you the impression of being judged as you enter. it's located in the southwest of Guangzhou, the attraction itself is ok, but there are...
