Nanchan Temple was wonderful. The first thing that will tickle your senses about the place will be the intricacies, colors and shapes of the temple architecture. Its like each panel has been meticulously placed designed to suit. The Buddhist relics inside the temples are awesome....More

Friends took me to see the old Wuxi city center, and this temple was very prominent. As typical of such place, there were people selling incense sticks and the likes outside.

Lot of colours, smells, people, shops and an exciting life all over. I took the opportunity of buying some jade and pearls here. If you do please take a local with you. Else you're gonna get screwed.

Nanchan Temple is quite small and has definitely seen better days. There isn't much to see or do unless you're there for religious reasons. The buildings and idols are a bit dilapidated and, to be honest, quite tacky. If you're looking for some photographic opportunities,...More
