Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Among all Buddhist temples in Fujian, Nanputuo is a notable one. The vast compound is a perfect example of Minnan architecture. The lush, pleasant courtyard is a rarity in Chinese temples. The worshiping halls, although newly renovated, are grand and solemn. Design is unique and colorful. Free admission but registration via Wechat is mandatory.

When we went in July 2021 they had a nice display for the Chinese Communist Party Centennial. The temple was nice and clean and we loved the turtle and lotus ponds. It was free to enter when we went but tricky to register via WeChat. Plan to spend about an hour or two here.

This is a clean and well maintained temple complete with statues of Buddhas, Bodhisattvas, and Arhats. What I appreciate most is this is an active place or worship actually being used by local people, as opposed to a tourist destination only used for taking photos.

Unfortunately when we visited there, it was partially under renovation, so some house have been closed for visitors. Also the access to the botanical garden was closed I’m not sure if this is because of COVID-19. A few years back when I visited the temple the first time the gate was open.
I like this temple because it’s not over crowded and also the decoration is a mix between the traditional Chinese decor and a modern touch. I find it calming to go there, but in these days there is a lot of entrances procedure with health code and showing the passport.

We were taken here by our private tour guide on our first day of the tour. I found this surprisingly pretty as a Buddhist temple without the mess and crowds. The lotus pond right in front just made the place even more serene. We did not hike up the hill since it looked like a climb that we shouldn't challenge. This temple is in the city so I assume it's easy to get to.

There was no fee to enter. There are several Buddhist buildings at the lower level of the complex. Once past those, one can start climbing steps to go up the hillside. There are some viewpoints along the way. There are some smaller buildings on the hill. We liked that there were no vendors trying to sell us stuff. There are lots of trees for shade. We are not sure what is at the top of the hill (might be an entry to the Wanshi botanical garden).

A tourist's place for anyone going to xiamen. 1 to 2 hours would be enough. No entrance fee. Near to Zhongshan Road.

The temple was extremely crowded with Chinese tourists making more than enough noise to destroy any atmosphere. There was a walk up the hill behind the temple but it was also over-populated and lacked any views that made it worthwhile. We were left wondering what reason there was to visit?

Really beautiful temple. We say at the top of the mountain behind it some look out points so we decided to go up. A lot of people make the climb, steep steps, thought I wasn't going to make to the top and I'm in decent shape then saw a lot of Chinese tourist in slacks and dresses doing it. But it was hard! Once at the top and incredible view that was worth it. Sharing looks of exhaustion with the other tourists always got a laugh or smile, we all knew it was hard but shared in the experience and the view.
