I have visited several dozen temples so my standards might be high. This temple is worth seeing at least once if you are in the area. It is easy to reach and a nice visit on the way to/from Xuanwu Lake. It is 10 RMB...More

most of nanjing was great because of the lack of other tourists, this temple was one of those spots. The ancient appearance and authenticly preserved building is remarkable.

We have visited lots of temples across China and Jiming was just ok. Did not feel the spiritual prescense of some of the other temples. The view of the lake and purple mountain from the back of the property is beautiful. Not a must see.

No matter what your beliefs, this is well worth a visit. Lots of stairs so it’s not great for those who find steps difficult.

While it is an attraction with a low ticket price of 10rmb (sometimes 15rmb) it is still a real temple with monks and Buddhists praying there every day. I'd avoid bothering them. It is soothing to listen to their chants and they are very friendly....More

Fortunately we visited this temple before we got all "templed out" so we thoroughly enjoyed it. So worth the climb up all the stairs to see this truly beautiful place. The incense is a nice gesture and the views are great. We actually ate at...More
