This is one of the most beautiful temples to be lit up at night! Can be seen from many different angles! A visit to this historic temple is a must both during the daylight hours as well as at nighttime!

Its worth a visit if u are staunch devotee. The vegetarian dishes are extremely expensive and easily cost 80rmb for a platter of fritters. Can try climbing to the peak. Not a tough climb.

Lovely temple full of people, and may of them praying and "offering offerings"!! I found it very interesting to watch such piety and intent and to consider that after 60 years of "Communism" Buddhism is still so supported and celebrated. Lots of young nuns too...More
