Cibei Nunnery is located in Taoran Park relatively close to the southern entrance. The entrance fee for the park is 2RMB, but for the nunnery you must pay another 10RMB.
Cibei Nunnery has a history of more than 700 years. There are no religious activities now, and the exhibits are mainly related with the revolutionary activities.
Its main buildings are Guanyin Temple, Zhunti Temple, Wenchang Pavilion, and Joyful Pavilion etc. Ever since the Qing Dynasty, it has been the get together place for men of letters and scholar-bureaucrats. And they have left many poems and works there. In modern times, the famous Chinese revolutionaries such as Mao Zedong, Zhou Enlai, and Li Dazhao secretly worked in here.
But anyway, you should visit it not only for its past, but mainly for the feeling you get there. There are not to many tourists, the buildings are relatively small and everything creates an intimate scene.
Has a great view over the Taoran park
