It has deep historical roots, a must-visit for those that want to explore other cultures. You can even get a blessing from the monks. It's not for everyone, there are those that believe only their religion is true and in don't want to be involved....More

This lovely buddhist temple was a respite from the bustle of the big city. The buildings and grounds are beautiful and many worshipers mingle among tourists as they pray and leave offerings. The beauty of China surrounds you.

I’ve been to visit this building a few times now. It may take a little bit of time to find it if you’re walking there but it’s worth going to see. Very peaceful area, beautiful architecture and some interesting history. You probably only need 30-45...More
