It was interesting walking around the temple where the Kung Fu Legend Ip Man or the art of Wing Chun came from. They showed us a lion dance & we contributed a red packet to the Lion Dance Troupe.

This Temple is located fairly central in the city and is easy to find. Inside is a welcome break and time to relax from the city life. There is a variety of buildings to look at inside. The real surprise was the Martial Arts Museum which had the history of Gung Fu in the Foshan and surrounding area..

This is my first visit to Foshan. Saw this temple as one of the best recommended attraction on the TripAdvisor so decided to go.

Although we have visited many Buddhist temples, we have never visited a Daoist Temple. Daoism was the first religeon in China about 2500years ago, but was replaced by the more popular Buddhist religion. It was extremely interesting to hear about the different ideological differences and to see the physical differences displayed around the temple

Nice little temple with cheap entry tickets. If you don't have a chinese speaker in your group, it's worth spending a bit more for the guided tour. The acrobatics show is interesting too, much more spectacular than the lion dances back home during chinese festivals.

This was a guided tour around the temple with talks on the history of this amazing structure. Finished off with a brilliant acrobatic display of the lion dance.
