It is one of famous Buddhist temple in Guangzhou with a history of about 1400 years. The place is very peaceful and beautiful. You can burn joss stick as an offering to the god and for getting blessing. Though it is a temple, there is an entrance fee and in my experience to different cities of China, it is same all over China. But looking at the maintenance, I think it is worth it.
A peaceful and tranquil place where the locals come. Did Did not see any tourists on a Saturday. Paid 5 yuan for the entrance fee. Only 3 banyan trees are left. A lot of locals come here to do participate in the weekend chanting session. Can stay here a long time sitting under the banyan tree. Cooling and at peace.
