“A very nice minor temple”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

If you are tired of huge crowds of bus tourists, this spot will give a little relief. It's right off the south end of West Lake, an easy walk from Lei Feng Pagoda.

It's peaceful, pretty, and well worth the effort. Inexpensive admission (10 Yuan.)

“Really Nice Temple”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

I didn't plan to visit Jingci Temple, but when I got out of Leifang Pagoda, which is located south to the West Lake (really close to the lake - you can see the pagoda from almost everywhere when walking around the lake), I saw Jingci Temple right in front of me. It's right in front of the pagoda. The entrance fee is 10 RMB. I never heard of it before, never saw any review of it, but I said - why not try and see what it is? And it really is a nice temple. The buildings are beautiful and I thought it was worth the 10 RMB I payed. It's worth a look, especially if you just got out of Leifang Pagoda (you can also see the temple from the top of the pagoda. It's a big temple).

“Nice statue, average temple”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

Jingci is a nice enough temple and it has a fantastic set of statues. It is just opposite the Leifeng pagoda and it can be easily combined to make an interesting visit. It is not the most spectacular temple in China and part of it is being renovated, so you can't visit the everything, but it is worth the 10 RMB entrance fee.
