Pay a visit to Longhua Temple, a complex known for its ancient seven-story pagoda. Though many of the temple buildings are reconstructions of earlier designs, the site as a whole has retained the Song dynasty architectural style it gained when rebuilt in 977 CE, with the overall layout following the Sangharama Five-Hall Style common to Chan Buddhist temples during the period. The pagoda's upturned eaves, decorative balconies, and ornate banisters have been repaired over the years, but its brick base and body date all the way back to the 10th century CE. Join the worshippers or simply watch and take in the atmospheric scene.

Очень красивый и интересный храм, в данный момент действующий и бесплатный для входа. Работает только с 9.00 до 16.00. Храм 龙华 находится на одноименной станции метро (11 ветка), в трёх минутах ходьбы.... more »Very beautiful and interesting temple, currently active and free to enter. Only from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. is open. The temple is located on the metro station of the same name (11 branches), a three-minute walk away. Even on Sunday it was spacious enough, thanks to the large area. There is a restaurant and many shops with souvenirs of traditional treats (mostly vegetarian).
Best temple downtown if you want to feel the spirit of people who actually Workship. It is now pretty easy to go to with line 12. The ticket price is super cheap too. You will take amazing pictures of the weather permits!
