I am a native of Wuhan, and I often take some foreign guests to visit Wuhan. For me, Guiyuan Temple is: Founded in 1658, Guiyuan temple is one of the most important temples in Wuhan. It is a daily custom of many Wuhan citizens to come to Guiyuan temple to pray for blessings. On the fifth day of the lunar new year, hundreds of thousands of pilgrims come here to "rob the head of incense" and worship the God of wealth. The most distinctive feature of Guiyuan temple is the 500 golden Arhats in arhat hall. You can try to count the Arhats and see how your luck is.

My visit was probably dampened due to poor weather and this slippery surfaces and few people around. The place was nice and well maintained with all the statues very big and impressive, all brightly coloured with prayer areas everywhere. The hall of buddhas was also great and there are information signs everywhere.

This was a great temple to visit, with many old buildings and shady courts. Spectacular hall of golden statues, and another hall with interesting Taoist visions of Hell.

I was originally going to give the temple 3 stars, but that was before I discovered the many different shrines and halls on the grounds. When I first arrived, I thought that the main tower was the entirety of the temple. It’s worth walking around there to see some paintings and if you talk, your voice will echo creepily off the walls. Unfortunately the stairs to go up were blocked off and I don’t know whether they are open at certain periods. Then, I checked out the halls on one side of the temple grounds. Don’t miss the hall with over 400 golden buddhas inside. There are also some giant buddhas in there and in other halls though I don’t think photography of the buddhas is allowed. Well worth à look if you have some time in Wuhan. It’s only a 15 minute walk from the subway station.
