Maitreya Buddha Temple, Xuedou Temple, this temple is part of a larger xuedou scenic mountain area. Also one of the five major buddhist mountains in China.

Great place for a day trip. You can escape from the busy city life of Ningbo and relax in the nature. It has many waterfalls, a nice hiking path, and a big golden Buddha statue. It is easy accessible by über, taxi or bus.

I was shocked to see the size of Buddha statues when went into the temple. Based on what I was told this temple was built 1600 years ago. A must visit sight.
