Peaceful... once you are inside

This place is huge. Not as stunning or as beautiful as some, but the feeling of peace once inside is palpable. The beggars outside prick your conscience though.

Interesting place to see, there are more temples here than I expected, it's fairly large. It's an active temple so it's great to have that authentic feel.

Temple of bliss does not offer you anything different than the other temples. My own opinion is that if you are not religious person then it could be said that if you have seen one temple or two then you have seen all of them.

Great temple located on a fairly large piece of land. Well maintained and clean. many buildings located within the temple grounds. Take your time and see all. Only costs 10rmb to enter. It's located very close to Harbin Amusement park.

The Temple of Bliss was the highlight of the visit to Harbin. Peaceful, large, full of religious areas surronded by enough empty space so you can walk around. The ambiance makes it easy to forget that you are in a large city (more than 5 million people in the urban area). Take your time to appreciate the architecture, the devotion... More

This Temple is well situated in the centre of the city, and on the day we visited there were very few other visitors making it easy to get around. The grounds are well maintained and buildings conveniently laid out to make visiting easy.

Not a big area and if you didn't have a tour guide or knew its history beforehand, probably not worth seeing. It was very well maintained and nice looking though.

. The Temple of Bliss in Dongdazhi Street was truly a heavenly place—one of the famous Buddhist temples set up in Chinese style. Hundreds of devotees lighted up incense sticks and prayed inside the grand halls and in front of the gigantic statue of Buddha that adorned the beautiful courtyard. Lovely, multi-storied pagodas, halls, statues of praying monks and different... More

Spring and summer is the best time to be here because this temple if covered in foliage and it frames the temples so beautifully. Such a nice and peaceful place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. It costs 10rmb to enter.
