Baoguo Temple is not far from Ningbo, with the magnificent architecture it is a famous temple. There is a viewing platform on the left, you can see the nearby mountains and the view is excellent. Definitely worth a visit!!

Apparently the structure stood here for over 1000 years. No nails were used and building is fire and insect proof. Our favourite building in Ningbo. Tranquil setting in the midst of much greenery.
