Hongfa Temple, located in the Shenzhen Xianhu Botanical Garden (Fairy Lake Botanical Garden), was built on a series of terraces in the Wutong Mountains. It's a great place to spend the day, see traditional Chinese architecture and get away from the city.

Detailed information available from The Temple Guy and Shenzhen Post.  More images on flickr, Panoramio and Picasa.
