“Let's loose youreself on the hills”
Reviewed May 18, 2014 via mobile

The temple is really beautiful, but that is a feature that it shares with most of the Chinese temples.

However, the walk on the hills behind the temple makes it a very special place! There is a lot to see, the view is excellent. It was a magical moment!

“Place to pray”
Reviewed May 7, 2014

Place of prayer and thanksgiving, I recommend a visit, is close to Xiamen University and you can visit the temples and also have the opportunity to meet their religious traditions

“Beautiful architectural, great vegetarian restaurant and superbly crowded”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

It is a pretty place to visit and not to miss is the vegetarian restaurant that is just next door. It is crowded but perhaps as like all tourist attraction in xiamen, there are 2 zillions tour groups around.

“Not the best temple and busy”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

Unfortunately we were there on a weekend and during a holiday (Qingming) on top of it. The place and surrounding area was very busy. It sure reduces the enjoyment and make it nearly impossible to get a taxi back to the hotel. We finally took the bus.
Saw nicer temples out of town.

“Fine architecture, fair Buddhas, and very, very crowded”
Reviewed March 27, 2014

We were one of maybe 100 tour bus groups here today. The grounds are quite large, there are a couple of pretty ponds with towers and bridges. The architecture is very good, and a couple of buildings were being rebuilt, which was interesting. What I believe to be the "main" Buddha was made of wood. There were 6-8 alters with images of different deities...most in good, but nothing as striking as the jade Buddha in Shanghai. This temple is worth the visit, but will probably eat up more time that you figure because of the traffic and the crowds. The crowds also detract from the believers at prayer.
