Not really a hot spot and difficult to find. The temple is crammed between buildings and there is not much to see for tourists. The architecture is strange, it is built after 1900 and looks like one of these churches. Inside there are the same Buddha figures as in all other temples.

i'm a local and would recommend this site for a one or two hours visit. The temple is not tourism developed and sits quietly among the local resident buildings. nice choice to visit it before sunset, as it's not very big and the inner part is very simple, so have a walk around the yard and take some pictures of...

The Gude Buddhist Temple was built in 1877, then rebuilt in 1921. It is said that the temple was built according to style of the Alantuo Temple in Myanmar. It is a very unique Buddhist temple in China, combining the western, Indian and Burmese architectural styles. Even you can see the Ionic order-like capital of columns. The architectural style is...

It's easy to miss the entrance, and even my Chinese friends were surprised at how "tucked-away" this location is. They have recently added an entrance fee but you receive incense to burn when paying. There are a couple of shops selling mostly Buddhist-related items as well as a hotel for travelers. Incense troughs scent the air. There is an old... More

We went to visit this temple on Sunday in the morning. Luckily at this time it was pretty empty and we could explore this temple in depth. I liked very much the combination of lotus growing there and this unique architecture. Worth visiting!

Gude Temple is a bit of a hard find, but once you get off Toudao metro station, you have two options: 1. Weave your path through the narrow alleys and walkways between apartment complexes in the general direction of the location. 2. Walk around the main street, turn again, and find the Wuhan Art high school - red color -... More

I have mixed feelings about this place. The architecture is very interesting, but they're building this new temple right next to it and not bothering to try and make it fit in with the slightly older architecture of the previous building. It's going to be pretty ugly, at least what I could see of the construction so far. I might... More

Well, if you will come there by taxi, or with crowded tourist bus, you will not feel the place. We suggest you to take a metro and get off on the nearest station, which is Tou Dao street, and have a quick 10 minutes walk through the district. After that, when you will discover the temple, you will think -... More

This is a neat temple. The only problem is that the local people spit on everything. It's difficult to enjoy when you hear the sound of someone hocking a loogie every few minutes!
