I was staying within walking distance of this place but didn't visit until the last day of the holiday. It was Chinese new year and so was very busy. They had a martial arts display and the Lion dance which were both very good. In the main arena they had some kind of Chinese Opera which was really not that... More

If you have a chance to visit to FOSHAN, this is one of the main attraction there, ZUMIAO, a very old historical temple. You would be able to have a chance to watch traditional lion dance (they will try to sell you some hand gifts) and Chaozhou Opera. Anyway, the entrance fee for ZUMIAO is 20RMB.

The Confucius Temple is in the same compound of the Ancestral Temple where you can also find Foshan Zumiao Museum, Foshan Huang Feihong Memorial Hall and the Ip Man Tong, The entrance fee is only 25RMB which is a great value.

This temple is on the grounds of the more impressive Zu Miao. It is small and not particularly noteworthy. If you go to Zu Miao, then, obviously, go and see it too, but don't expect too much. You can try and throw your wish on the wishing tree there - that's pretty good fun.

It is often difficult to find some typical - old style- places in China, much has been replaced by new, modern buildings. So this is really a nice calm temple complex very close to the shopping center (or one of them) in Foshan. A multitude of temples, old buildings etc. I did recall the place as the Foshahn Zumian museum,... More

better visit during the week, also it is not easy to understand if you go alone, it is better to go with a chinese buddish to let him explain some.
