This place is nice and quiet. it is a good place for a comfortable afternoon stroll. Lots of shade, wildlife and several ancient temple sites and pagodas which are still in service. Much has been renovated and restored, but it is the original sites.

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.
