Beautiful Buddhist temple complex, with monastery & grounds
Aug 2019
The temple was originally established in the 10th century. There were only a few worshipers and monks present (or at least in sight) during our visit. I was impressed by the Hall of Heavenly Kings [Buddhist Gods]. It contains four large statues, each depicting a Buddhist God or Warrior King. Outside the Hall, are thousands of red ribbons, being the wishes of those who tied them there. The statues are likely about 12 feet in height.

A Nice Monastery
Mar 2019 • Solo
The Hoi Tong Monastery is a nice place not that far from the Shamian Island. We ended up walking here and liked the peace and quiet experience. Quite a historic monastery, which has been around for over 300 years or so.

Quiet Temple
Oct 2018 • Solo
Strolling away from Shamian Island I came across this temple quite by accident. It is a lovely quiet spot in a busy city and the buildings were all open for everyone to come. The site had many locals in it, many were just sitting in the open spaces and few were praying at the temples. The architecture of the buildings and the layout of the grounds is quite lovely. However, it would be nice to have some signage in a language other than Chinese for the tourists (like me) to learn more about the place and its rich history.

A Wonderful Experience
Sep 2014 • Friends
First, I am a practicing Buddhist so this may be biased. I've visited a quite a few temples in Mainland China and and by far this one is my favorite. It's the only one I've been to with no entrance fee. Many Temples, Buddhist or otherwise have entrance fees because the government requires the Temples to pay a certain amount to the government as a sort operating fee. Somehow this temple gets away with not having an entrance fee. It's very lively and and active. The grounds are used as a park by the locals and you can see kung fu and tai chi being practiced on the weekends. The monks are very friendly, helpful and love to teach Dharma any chance they get. The members there are also some of the nicest I've encountered. I spent 2 days there and loved every minute. It has a rich history and the Great Buddha Hall is from the late Ming Dynasty.
