This is very impressive. Huge new Buddha outside surrounded by hundreds of Lotus plants. The flowers are amazing. There are long walks around a still pond that is half full of Lotus flowers. Wander the temple and monastery and explore the maze of buildings and meditation and prayer rooms. The people are friendly but no one speaks English

This is a large temple complex in a park like setting. It is very much worth a visit if you have a spare day in Chongqing. It is on a hillside, so expect to get some exercise. While there are roads and some ramps, it would prove difficult to see it all if you have mobility problems.

Well worth a visit as part of a city tour of the sites, and not busy. I visited during the national holiday and still not too many visitors.

This temple is in a beautiful large park. The temple itself is quite big - or the whole complex, and I think it's worth visiting. There are some art exhibitions going on, there is a tall pagoda (unfortunately you cant go up the pagoda) and also this hall, where ash of people is stored. By the pagoda there are gold... More
