I have lived in China for several years, and perhaps I have grown complacent, but temples like this are through all Chinese cities. The architecture, the colours, the history and the landscaping are all lovely. If you have never been to a temple in China, or if you thoroughly enjoy them, go have a look, it is very easy to get to as the metro stops right there.

We live in China for several years so for us it was “another buddhist temple” but I believe for new comers it is stunning and unique place :) They care about this landmark, all looks nice, very lively place.

A beautiful and relaxing temple. Very impressive buildings and a great insight into Chinese Buddhist temples. Would recommend if visiting Beijing.

This is one of the finest examples of a functioning Buddhist temple you will find in China. You will see many monks and worshippers burning incense to Buddha and get to walk in and through a number of buildings that the Emperor actually lived in during the 1750's AD. There are many different Buddhist statutes but the most impressive of all is a 50 ft tall wooden Buddha carved from a single sandlewood tree trunk. It is so big that the building had to be built around the Buddha after it had been moved into pace. Worth a look.…

A beautiful and large temple. Incredibly peaceful place for meditation and incense provided for prayers.
