The temple is peaceful and serene, the big wooden Budda is a magnificent sight! To see how it was hand carved from one single tree over 300 years ago.I suggest this sight to see this magnificent structure.

Once you visit a bunch of temples in China it kinda feels the same. This temple - thanks to the huge wooden statue, feels more special...And from the outside it also looks quite interesting. The whole area is quite large. There is one shopping street...More
