Great place!

Great place located about 30min drive from Central Ningbo. Very nice place to walk and explore especially on a sunny day.

This temple is very similar to other ones. The big difference is its beautiful location and a huge area which this temple covers. There is a lot of room for walking, resting. A lot of plants nice flowers. One element not seen by me in other temples is the Drum Tower. You can learn there a lot about how these... More

The claim to fame for this ancient temple is that there is not a single nail in the construction of the entire building. While it's no longer a working temple any more, they have research labs on site where renowned scholars study the construction to learn Chinese architecture from this living model, and it is still incredible how they build...

A nice wooded area on a hillside not too far out of town. It was a warm day when we visited, but alot of trees and some pavilions help provide shade. The Temple stretches back to the Song Dynasty, with additions and renovations over the years, most during the Ming and Qing Dynasties. You can walk up the hill and... More

It calls a Temple, but it has no Buda or Monk anymore. Baoguo Temple is the Live Dictionary of Traditional Chinese Architecture and it is the Pearl on the Crown. You will see 3 eye-drop miracle there (cannot tell you here, you'd better find by yourselves there), and it has detailed intruduction in both Chinese and English. It's not a... More

Very old temple, cool to see the woodwork, lots of exhibitions to show how it was constructed. Besides the temple, it's a nice place to go for a hike and lots of great spots to take photos. The 20 kuai ticket is well worth it.

It was awesome to see and feel the Temple, although some was rebuilt, dating 1,000 years ago. It is worth the effort to walk up the hill...

The architecture is magnificent; rare timber structures. As one who has built his own timber frame house the beauty here made me feel more than a bit incompetent. At the grounds are lovely as well. The government has been putting effort into enhancing the temple and the access road. Worth a bus trip from Ningbo!
