A rather large temple complex in Wuhan that is especially known because of the temple of the 500 Boeddha's. Listen to the explanation of one of the guides to find your own. The place was peaceful and not crowded when we were visiting.

There's a new temple being built in the back of the site, make sure to check it out. The construction is almost finished and it's one of the most marvelous temples I've seen in China.

A definitely must visit place in Wuhan. Beautiful and calm place. Helps in meditation. The 500 Buddhas are worth viewing.

The visit is quite busy as many people are there for prayers rather than site seeing. It was interesting to see so many temples within the one complex. Some nice photo opportunities. Incredible to see how much money is taken in the offerings.

A great time for crowds and bus tours to arrive. Many people selling incense on the way, but read review below if you buy! A very touristy location but gold Lohans at the far west-side of the main temple are unique- note that the gold fortune card is not free but seems to be about 10 Yuan if you can... More
