Lotus flowers!
Jun 2019
It was beautiful, peaceful, and serene. We decided to eat with the monks, which was a nice experience. While we enjoyed the temple, what brought us were the blooming lotus flowers. It rained a little but the experience was still lovely. So beautiful! They gave me my favorite screen-savers! ☺♥♥♥♥

Very nice temple situated in a very well maintained park but rather outside of the town centre, can only be reached by car, taxi or bus

Lovely green space, nice temple stuff
Apr 2017 • Solo
An albeit touristy temple - the massive Buddha it is famous for is a very recent addition. But it has a wonderful location, with the centrepiece lake making a lovely walk as you go from part of temple to part of temple.

A little out of the way from the main areas of the city, but that helps contribute to the relaxed feeling you have here. Plenty of monks can be seen around the main area going about their business.
Also a very fancy vegetarian restaurant in the temple's main area.

Don't bother buying anything from the overpriced tat stalls that littler the road nearby.

Beautiful example of Bhuddist monastery
Jun 2016 • Business
This is very impressive. Huge new Buddha outside surrounded by hundreds of Lotus plants. The flowers are amazing. There are long walks around a still pond that is half full of Lotus flowers. Wander the temple and monastery and explore the maze of buildings and meditation and prayer rooms. The people are friendly but no one speaks English

Picturesque Temple Complex
Apr 2016 • Couples
Located a bit away from the main centres, it is still worth a place to visit for a few hours. An active temple complex frequented by locals. Nice grounds. Good place for pictures. A number of shops selling gifts, beads and the like. Has a vegetarian restaurant on site. Also contains a large burial vault for hundreds of cremated remains. Popular place around Qingming Jie (grave sweeping day), as people come to pray and offer gifts to dead family members.

A large temple complex
Mar 2016
This is a large temple complex in a park like setting. It is very much worth a visit if you have a spare day in Chongqing. It is on a hillside, so expect to get some exercise. While there are roads and some ramps, it would prove difficult to see it all if you have mobility problems.

Nice temple worth a stop if exploring the city
Sep 2015 • Solo
Well worth a visit as part of a city tour of the sites, and not busy. I visited during the national holiday and still not too many visitors.
