“Good Place to go”
Reviewed April 19, 2014

It is a good place to respect the Buddha. There are several Buddha, estimated more than 200 Buddha. They do not allow to take the photo inside the shrine but it is okay to take photo outside. There are the incense burning outside of the shrine. However the toilet is not good. Several toilet doors in the woman restroom are out of order.

On the edge of the town surrounded by shops it has easy access and is something you can take in on your day out shopping.

“The Mysterious Temple”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

This temple is surrounded by the modern pedestrian shopping district north of ganjian road. It is a fascinating entrance into the symbolism of the Taoist pantheon, with scores of taoist deities lining the walls of the interior. The three statues at the front of the temple are also fabulous, as is the finely carved lantern hanging from the roof above the entrance.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed May 24, 2012

An interesting Taoist temple in the middle of town which has been recently restored, and is worth a visit. Many beautiful statues inside, and only 10 RMB entry fee.
