“okay, not great”

Seven-pagoda Temple
Reviewed 21 January 2015

Nothing usual or interesting to see here. Just a neighborhood temple. In front there are a couple of veggie restaurants that cater to the monks.

Ningbo Qita Si, or Seven Pagodas Temple is one of the most peaceful places I've been to. It is a real Buddhist temple with nothing commercial (just a nominal charge for entrance ticket), not like in main cities in China. Tranquil atmosphere and real Buddhist monks here and there.
If you want to take a rest from the crowded city, the Seven Pagodas Temple is one of the best places to visit in Ningbo.
Next to the temple you can find shops selling Buddhist's attributes. Although, there is no food selling inside the temple, you can easily find a place to eat near the Temple.

This temple is mainly for it is a very spiritual place, very peaceful.
a bit far to reach, so try not to go or to be returning back during traffic hours.
Very colorful temple, with very nice gardens, benches, lakes and turtles.
Try not to take pictures or enter , while there is a service. They dislike it. I made this mistake, because I did not see the sign. And they started watching me, as a attraction. I believe some monks and the others women, who work there, did not see many foreigners, so they might spend some time executing you. But this China, it is normal people to be interested in you. It is adorable.
There is a lot of water, trees, and it mosquitoes - Might be good to take repellent with you, i got bitten a few times.

It actually look a lot like many other temples, except that it has 7 layers of the temples, and you can see their real monks inside. It was so quiet and peaceful, feel like you far away from the busy city, even you're literally in the middle of the city. Outside the temple, there're lots of small shops selling praying materials, and one annoying thing were all the beggars in front of the temple. Other than that, worth the visit.
