Extensive grounds - Excellent place to spend a few hours outdoors. Be enthralled by the big temple grounds - suggest that you start off by heading towards the Big Buddha where you will find the 18 Luohan along the way and head upwards to view the 10 courts of hell. Very well maintained statutes with vibrant colors and well carved... More

this is one place where travellers can really have peace of mind and it is so peaceful and the temperature is so comforting that one can sit for hours doing self meditating or even reading without feeling uncomfortable. The scenery is also so beautiful that if you were to feel bored the scenery will invigorate you.

A very serene temple to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the busy city. Take a walk towards the Buddha and write your wishes on the money tree, after which, you can take the stairs towards the 10 chambers of hell, your journey to enlightenment. You can reflect on your wrongdoings towards others as you see how... More

This is a Buddhist temple and religious site. We enjoyed, I guess is the word, the depiction of the 10 Hells. They are kind of gory-not for young kids. For us, they sparked discussion of sins and consequences. There is also a depiction of the Goddess of Happiness, and some other statues that were nice. We are Christian, so this... More

We visited this temple after we had checked into the hotel at the top of the hill. It was a good attraction and used up our time before dinner. Unfortunately we arrived during a period of bad weather, the clouds were coming over the mountains and by the end of our visit had completely covered all buildings, very atmospheric if... More
