if you don't want to go to touristic places, if you want to relax, then you might like this temple, located in the north of the city.

This is a nice relaxing temple with some good sculptures. Worth a visit but public transport is a bit scarce if you don't read Chinese

While I was not too impressed by the temple grounds or buildings, the 500 statues of "ordinary people", dressed in their work clothes, was impressive, although some were not available due to renovations. Built in the Song Dynasty (960 to 1279 AD), although some say...More

Almost 1:30 hours drive from the city center with buses. Just a regular small temple, there is nothing special about it. Even if it was the first temple i have ever seen in china, i would have been disappointed.
