Great place to visit. Beautiful grounds and very peaceful. Nice break from the the busier tourist sites. Don't need to spend a lot of time there, but would recommend just taking it all in.

Yet another fabulous pagoda that I've seen while touring Guangzhou!)) There are a total of seven step layers and many different trees and grass area around it! You can see the creek right next on the bottom of the temple, then there are also beautiful ducks in the creek)) Lovely

This temple is one of the main sights of Guangzhou. It costs 5 RMB to visit which includes 4 incense sticks. The temple and the pagoda are beautiful and historic. During my first visit in 2007, you could climb to the top of the pagoda but since then you can't (hopefully this changes). There are still banyan trees there. It... More

The six banyan trees is the icon of this historical temple. Popular and crowded by locals, also listed as one of the four main temples in Guangzhou. Green and peaceful place for self reflection.

This was a very fun and interesting place to visit. I strolled the grounds of the temple for a few hours enjoying the amazing artwork and statues. The pagoda is fantastic and the 3 huge bronze Buddhas in the main temple building are truly awesome. Anyone that follows the Buddhist path should visit if they have the chance.

I went here as a tour guide with a family form United States. The temple is very quiet. It is a nice place to go if you would like to explore Chinese culture .

We only had a short time in Guangzhou and this is one of the places we visited. Tucked away in an area of old Canton this atmospheric temple is not old - it was rebuilt in 1988 after the vandalism of the Cultural Revolution- but its serene quiet was an antidote to the teeming masses outside the walls. A 300... More

We visited the quiet place after worship after a good 5 - 7 mins work from the metro it's right away from the hustle of bejin street. It's a bit hard to find and cost about ¥2 to get in and it very relaxing as people come in to pray and just walk silently. There are some other statues that... More

Been there years ago and still a nice place to visit again. If you are used to visit temples in Asia this may be not so impressive.

It's not a must-see temple but I recommend to visit there if you have plenty of time. It take around 5-10 minutes from the subway station. You can also walk to GuangXiao Si from there too.
