Very nice temple near Xiamen station. Much bigger than I though and had more to it than other temples I've been to. Make sure to be respectful if you visit for the people who worship.

I felt very serene from the moment we walked onto the property. Almost overwhelmed by the quiet of the space we were in, even though there were so many people around me where ever I turned.

Even though this temple is near the Ximending shopping district, it's a small laid-back temple. You won't find many tourists here (despite the hotels and hostels around). After you stepped through the front entrance you will find the temple itself. It's very atmospheric and a peaceful place in this busy area. I visited it several times because I liked it... More

Tucked away on the busy streets of Ximending this temple is a beautiful spot to slip into. It has a waterfall and Taoist art.

This is a historical temple located in the Ximending area. Great place to take a break from the busy shopping scene. We came in the evening and all the lanterns in the temple was lit. Very beautiful and memorable. Do plan your visit in the evening, so that you can see the lovely lanterns.

You almost hesitate to enter when you see it from the street, but this is the nicest temple I've visited. beautiful throughout altough unpretentious and discrete. Don't forget to climb all the floors, the place is full off surprises. Bonus: easy access and almost no visitors!

An unassuming temple from the outside. Beautifully done inside. The koi pond was a nice touch. Inside hung thousand of red lanterns. Incense smells drifted throughout the temple. If you visit, make sure to inspect the columns inside the temple. Each column is full of tiny Buddhas from floor to ceiling; impressive

This temple is much more than it looks from the street - I thought it was the usual store front local temple until I entered and saw that it expands into a courtyard and roof area between / at the back of the shops. It is a Confucian, Daoist and Buddhist temple mixed together which makes it fairly unusual and... More

In the middle of a busy shopping street this little temple is a nice surprise. It's cute, modest and busy with local passerbys that stop for their prayers. Worth a 15 minute visit if you're passing from there
