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

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.

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!
