No 1 temple in China. The area is quiet, big, and beautiful; having a rich history of Buddha. We spent about two hours there and I’d wish stay there a little longer to enjoy the tranquility.

This is a good place to understand better Buddhism and have a look of different types of temples (Chinese, Indian, Thai, Malaysian). The garden is also nice for a walk (particularly in April when flowers blossom)
