This complex is not particularly easy to reach. It is worth a visit in combination with Tiantong Temple complex, as it is only about 10 km from Tiantong. It is not ancient, and there was major renovation / restoration work underway at numerous places.

Easy to get to, take the subway to the last stop heading East, then take the 790 or 155 bus, 45-1 hour from the downtown. Really peaceful ancient feeling here, got some great shots. Around two hours is enough time to see everything. And it's...More
