Located in Hangzhou Lingying scenic area, it has beautiful environment. It has been more than 1600 years old seating on hill. Seeing green plants, listen to stream murmuring and lighting incense in such a peaceful place are very enjoyable things.

The Yongfu monastery complex is quite old and has a 1,600 year old history. Yong fu means "forever happy". It's truly a peaceful and bucolic place to be. You can still see actual monks walking around the complex. The place is huge and is sandwiched...More
