“Beautiful temple with great views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

Definitely worth a visit, it's a nice temple, with praying rooms for different purposes (when my gf told me one of the Buddhas stands for fertility, I had to run, though), and it has nice views over the city and Xuanwu lake due to its position on a hill top.

“Linggu Si”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2012

I think this pagoda and temple are well worth visiting. I have been to many temples/ pagodas in Asia and this one is beautiful! I would not miss it and would definitely go again.

“Beautiful scenery, fresh air, traditional Chinese”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2011

Linggu tower is 8 stories, but if you take breaks on the balconies, you get to take in the views around. The grounds are beautiful and clean, and the trees must be centuries old. The air is fresh away from the city too. There are also several memorials and temples in the grounds around Linggu worth seeing.
