It was nice to visit a Buddhist temple in the middle of big city such as Guangzhou. There was chant playing all over the place through speakers in the late afternoon, and it really added to the atmosphere.

A Taoist - Buddhist Temple with an enormous pagoda at the inner compound. Not very big compared to the Banyan Tree Temple in Beijing.

The temple is absolute beautiful. The incense burning is all over the place, smells amazing. It was very calm and a lot of locals were there. I had a guide with me and she explained me some of the history, would recommend that, because nobody is in there which can explain something to you.

Beautiful place with a very nice garden, many flowers and trees. Should have more structure for the turist but the sensation us one oasis in the middle of the big city. Very relax time I passed there.

It's a beautiful place, in one of the back streets... Quiet and peaceful, with locals only praying in silence. It's worth couple of hours just to do nothing.

We stopped at this temple as part of our 6-day stay in Guangzhou. This was our first time ever visiting a temple, and we thought it was quite lovely. It was a very serene place, with incense burning everywhere. It feels a little weird treating a place like this as a tourist destination, but we would recommend taking a look... More

Viewed only from the outside but certainly a landmark of distinction. There are several points in the surrounding streets from which you can get a good view - and I feel sure it would be interesting to see the inside. Time - not money - stops us.

As a temple attraction, this is really small and uninspiring. The good points are the location so it is easily accessible and the small ground so you can cover it easily. There is not much else to offer. Beware of bogus monks or nuns outside the temple who will solicit cash donations.

The cost of admission is only 5 rmb. unfortunately the day i went it was quite noisy within the temple grounds and they were repairing around the base of the pagoda. The banyan trees on the grounds are cool. but overall this temple is quite small. if you are in the area and have 30 minutes or so, you can... More

This is one of the "Top 10" places to see in Guangzhou. Pay the small entrance fee and enter a place of tranquility. Whilst entrance into the Temple is not permitted for the ordinary non-CCCP mere mortal, the grounds solicit exploration. Be aware, obtaining an exit taxi may prove challenging in the afternoons.
