This place has changed quite a fair bit since I came about 4-5 years ago. It used to be much bigger and quieter but it has now fenced off part of it for the monks and also for the teahouse/restaurant. Entrance is free and it...More

The temple is one of Chengdu's main attractions. It is a modern monastery, but is filled with history and is a good place to get acquainted with Buddhism. It is a very easy to get there and wasn't crowded at all.

An active site for worshippers, but I didn't find anything for non-Buddhists here. Large restaurant inside, and a pleasant garden. Can be skipped if your visit to Chengdu is brief.

Not really our thing but a nice place nevertheless. Seems to be used by quite a few locals for prayer. Pleasant quick stop before lunch.

The temple is nice enough, the gardens are serene and quiet, cool and green which is really nice. A fair bit of it is classic China fakery, fake old. The meeting hall thing in my photo looks like it's 500 years old but was built...More
