It is not a single temple. It is a complex of several temples. For the highest temple you need to climb something around ten ten floors. If you can get to the top you will have a great view of the West Lake, a forest...More

If you go to the Lei Feng Pagoda, or even if you don't, it's worth visiting this temple complex. As usual, there are a number of buildings, rising from the highway up the hill. These include an interesting exhibition of Buddhist sculptures, and some strongly...More

Despite its location opposite Leifeng Pagoda and Su Causeway, the Jingci temple is serene, peaceful, and blissfully free of the frenetic crowds and noisy tour groups that surround West Lake.

It is a silent temple opposite to the Lei Feng Pagoda. The entrance fee is not too high. The environment is relaxing. You can get there by bus Y2.
