Great place to spend a day and learn something about Chinese history. There are plenty of English translated placards to help you understand what your looking at.

Like visiting a Buddhist theme park that has no rides. My friend who speaks fantastic Chinese asked a "Monk" about the smartphone he was using for a bit of fun, as we were leaving we came close to being run over by another of the monks driving a brand new Honda Civic. Religion in China is managed nothing like any... More

Big park and temple to discover. Need to pay 20Yuan at entrance.Hv so many big temple you can freely go in. No restriction to take pictures. Have signage in English and you can read it throughout the journey. Nice and well maintain park. The architecture of the building was amazing with big temples and Pagoda.

The Xichan Temple is one of my favorite places in Fuzhou! It is in the middle of skyscrapers and busy traffic but once you enter the park it feels like a different world full of peace and beauty. You can see koi fish and turtles in the water and the buildings are just impressive. Even if it was incredible hot... More

A beautiful place to stroll around. The temple has big lakes, and many buildings to see. Easy to get to because it is next to a bus station. Turtles in the lake.

On our adoption trip for our son in May 2016, we visited Xichan Temple. It is beautiful. Our guide was able to tell us things we wouldn't have otherwise known, but it would have been beautiful without a guide as well. Definitely worth a couple hours.

A visit to Xichan Temple will take you maximum 1 hour and that is enough to walk around it, see 500 statues of Buddha, feed fish in the pond and maybe pray if you a budhist. Also you may have shopping in shop nearby to buy some souvenirs. Lots of nice photos can be taken there.
