It’s a fairly small temple but a cute one. It has a nice small pond which I enjoyed. But other then that it’s just another temple.

The temple was lively and definitely worth a stop. The library was really interesting. The highlight was the tea sampling you can do near the entrance. It’s 30rmb at the time of writing and definitely worth it.

After changing metro and finally reach Huangpu District, we tread along the alley looking for a quick lunch on the way to the Confusious Temple. The building architectual is ancient and we are glad to make our prayer on such a peaceful afternoon.
