Old Temple surrounded by skyscrappers. Nice grounds. As of this writing some areas closed off due to nearby construction. Beautiful temple. Some interesting areas and displays.

It's funny how you can find so peaceful place from the city centre. the cost is 10CNY enter the temple and it is quite small but worth to visit. Some parts were under construction.

Nice temple and interesting enough to visit despite the entry fee. There are better temples in the world but it's one of the better places to see in Chongqing.

A fascinating visit and a great way to understand how China has become a country of so many very large cities. The Temple is well laid out and easy access so worth spending a good hour simply walking around and looking at the exhibition.

We do not agree that a place of worship should charge entrance fee (10 yuan per person). A donation box would be more appropriate which we would have gladly given.

Probably the Chinese are trying hard to preserve some of their cultural past. This is a good example in the heart of Chongqing. This temple is really encased in the highrise building around and the subway line underneath it.

I know that compared to other temples in China or Japan, this one is a minor temple and not particularly stunning but I really enjoyed my visit. The temple was not crowded and was extremely beautiful. I particularly enjoy the contrast between this traditional temple...More

Location best visited with a guide other wise your really dont know the significance of all the little thinks in place turning a one hour walk into a half day experience. The blend of the old and the new is worth capturing on photo.

I wasn't too excited about touring this place at first. But, after getting a chance to walk around inside this landmark and listen to our very well-informed guide, I'm glad we did. It's really a very elaborate structure which also depicts early Chinese life in...More
