A beautiful Buddhist Temple in Fuzhou, well worth the detour if you're in town. The pictures do it justice.

The Xichan Temple is one of my favorite places in Fuzhou! It is in the middle of skyscrapers and busy traffic but once you enter the park it feels like a different world full of peace and beauty. You can see koi fish and turtles in the water and the buildings are just impressive. Even if it was incredible hot... More

A beautiful place to stroll around. The temple has big lakes, and many buildings to see. Easy to get to because it is next to a bus station. Turtles in the lake.

On our adoption trip for our son in May 2016, we visited Xichan Temple. It is beautiful. Our guide was able to tell us things we wouldn't have otherwise known, but it would have been beautiful without a guide as well. Definitely worth a couple hours.

A visit to Xichan Temple will take you maximum 1 hour and that is enough to walk around it, see 500 statues of Buddha, feed fish in the pond and maybe pray if you a budhist. Also you may have shopping in shop nearby to buy some souvenirs. Lots of nice photos can be taken there.

You can watch monks pray and go about their bussines. It's even more interesting than the sights....

, like the location and surrounding, lots of place for photography, the gate charge should be 10 yuan for normal people instead of 20 ,, and 5 for student instead of 10. lots of temples and beautiful lake with lots of fish and turtles, easily reachable from the city centre by bus .
