Everything that you'd possibly want from a Buddhist temple hidden in the mountains. It's, large, old and still fully operational with chanting monks, incense, bamboo forests and fish ponds. Lovely place.

My Chinese friend kindly drove me there. Took about 40 mins but well worth it. Peaceful and Japanese zen-like atmosphere. Very well preserved and properly signed/ operated. Lucky to saw Sakura (cherry blossom) there too. The pagoda was under renovation so no climbing though.

This is a beautiful peaceful place, well worth the visit. It is quite a long, but not challenging, walk to the temple from the car park surrounded by great views. There are lots of fascinating and authentic aspects together with some well stocked souvenir stalls...More

Ningbo might look like a very modern city today, but it has been a prominent centre since the Tang Dynasty some 14 centuries ago. A centre for both literature and religion, the city can make an intriguing attraction for those willing to track down its...More
