Very careful and extremely clean. It can be reached by metro.

  • A beautiful Mahayana Temple with very beautiful Chinese architecture. There is an entrance fee which costs RMB20. A very relaxing and serene place to contemplate about life. There is no ramp and as such it is a little inconvenient for wheelchairs users as well as children traveling on strollers.
  • This was my first temple to visit and I found it quite interesting, I will definitely recommend this place although be careful with the staff sometimes they don't allow take pics
