This temple is indeed still open. It still costs 10yuan to enter. There are ticket offices to the left and right of the entrance. Once you enter you can buy incense on your left for 5yuan if you are so inclined. The shop with blessed items is on the right of the entrance (you can enter the shop from the outside as well).

There is a vegetarian cafeteria to the left of the entrance (outside) there is a table on the left where you can buy a pot of rice and veg or a cold noodle salad (10yuan each) and there is soup for 2yuan.
stalls with vegetarian goods can be found on the right.

If you want to visit a free temple there is one behind this one close to the entrance of the park.

Maybe it’s just as wonderful during the rest of the year too but I can truly recommend it when snow-covered: it was majestic! Definitely worth trying to explore as much as you can because it goes on a lot further than it originally appears.

. The Temple of Bliss in Dongdazhi Street was truly a heavenly place—one of the famous Buddhist temples set up in Chinese style. Hundreds of devotees lighted up incense sticks and prayed inside the grand halls and in front of the gigantic statue of Buddha that adorned the beautiful courtyard. Lovely, multi-storied pagodas, halls, statues of praying monks and different avatars of Buddha, scriptures and paintings made up this beautiful temple. Be ready to spend 2-3 hours if you are interested to go around the entire temple complex.

The Buddhist (sizable) temple complex is worth taking the time to see while in Harbin. It is an active and busy site with many people taking the time for prayer and reflection. The buildings are beautiful and it appears as though the grounds would lovely when it's green (I was there in the winter).

The Temple of Bliss is really a fairly large complex of temples and living quarters. I enjoyed wandering the complex and seeing the beautiful details of each structure. There were many faithful Buddhist praying and incense was burning. A worthwhile stop in Harbin.

Temple of bliss does not offer you anything different than the other temples. My own opinion is that if you are not religious person then it could be said that if you have seen one temple or two then you have seen all of them.

Spring and summer is the best time to be here because this temple if covered in foliage and it frames the temples so beautifully.

Such a nice and peaceful place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. It costs 10rmb to enter.

This was the perfect place to come after all the bright lights of Harbin's more commercial attractions.

It was bitterly cold when we went, but we felt so warm inside just from pottering around. I'm not a Buddhist, but I don't think you need to be in order to experience the waves of tranquility.

Visited the temple on Chinese New Year day. Very crowded also in front of the temple (pedestrian street), but a quiet and peaceful moment. 10RMB entrance cost.

what a lovely and tranquil place to visit. Very easy to get to metro line 1 (only line currently built), then just a 5-10min walk from exit 1. Such a lovely setting around the temple and to go inside only costs 10rmb. Was very quiet inside, which was a lovely change to the other temples I've visited in China. Was very cold and snowing when I visited, but it didn't bother me!

Don't rush around the place take your time and go in every building, they are beautifully decorated and it's great to see everything up so close.
