A little hard to find, this temple set on the hill has multiple buildings with view of the Xuanwuhu Lake and Park. For fee of 10RMB, you get 3 jossticks and time to explore. The temple itself is a nice example of Buddhist temple with parts of the complex used as storage for building materials and other bits and pieces.... More

Having seen quite a lot of buddhist temples in many sizes, shapes and ages I consider Jiming to be a modern-ish looking temple. You have to pay an admission ticket of 10 RMB. Just like many other attractions in Nanjing the temple is built on a slope of hill, not so easy to get there but you will have the... More

Its located in a convenient and easily accessible part of the city. I came on a rainy day so it wasn't crowded. There's a vegetarian restaurant at the top that has good views. Not a must visit, but it was pleasant.

Busted the temple with my wife, it was an amazing place!!! So many people around and so many steps to climb. Wonderful ambience and full of positive energy. Close to the lake and to the city wall, a great way to see this part of the city

Having never seen a buddhist temple before this was an interesting visit. There is an admission ticket of 10 yuan. The temple is built on the slope of a hill, so it's pretty picturesque. There are some steps to climb, but they should be no trouble for most. Xuanwu lake is nearby so one can combine a visit to the... More

Temple complex, built on the side of a hill. Photogenic place with interesting angles. Many steps to climb. Too many. Within walking distance from the XuanWu Park and the City Walls.

It is only a short metro ride away from the centre of Nanjing, but the area here is completly different, quite and green. The temple itself is worth going to see. Not over crowded like many other attractions in China.
