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.

A once in a lifetime experience...climb to the top of this wonderful pagoda great views of Old Canton. The temple is located in nice grounds with plenty if fauna and flora for some inviting photo ops. Sit and enjoy a cool drink and ponder about the era when it was built.

An oasis in a very busy city; quite interesting and very much a 'live' temple rather than simply a tourist attraction. Well worth an hour or so...

Peaceful little area of Guangzhou. Takes a short walk from multiple metro stations to get here. The most impressive part of the temple is the Lotus Pagoda, originally erected in 10th century AD -- beautiful, but unable to go into the Pagoda. You don't need much time here. Around the block is the Bright Filial Piety Temple -- it is... More
