The vegetarian restaurant at the temple is the main reason to visit Jiming temple. "Meat" and "fish" dishes are tasty and affordable. Down to earth and porkpular with locals. A picture menu with English text makes ordering easy.

The Jiming Temple is a main attraction in Nanjing. You get wonderful city views from the temple while seeing an ancient religious site. Admission includes three incense sticks to burn and place in a cauldron. A definite must see attraction!

Visiting Jimingsi Temple was an unforgetable experience! The steep steps lad us to beautiful Temple and Tower. At back on the Jimingsi Temple was an entrance to the big town wall.

This is an old and beautiful temple, located just next to the lake. While it is possible to visit the temple, we found it more impressive from afar.
