This sprawling temple complex is by far the most interesting sight in Wuhan and a must see stop. Although there is a nominal charge of 10CNY to enter, this was waived when I arrived as nobody had change of a 100CNY note! Inside there are multiple temples and shrines, with a variety of architecture and interior design. Around every corner... More

Recommended by a reliable taxi driver, as the Provincial museum was closed for renovation. Well worth the visit. A place for self evaluation, special artifacts, and some amusing activities.

We took a metro train to Zhongjiachun station and walked around some residential area for abt 30min trying to find the 300 years old temple. Entrance fee is CNY10. After walking thro the worshipping areas and a pond, we came to an... More

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.
