Its a nice break from the hectic city. Its a snapshot to the past of Fuzhou and is spectacular. The temple is a classic chinese temple.

Great place to visit to appreciate Chinese culture & the architecture of a temple. Lots of interesting areas to view & lovely plants and tree balance to blend nature & man-made structures. Recommend to visit.
