Good sized temple. As expected, pretty quiet and good for reflection. Had a little park area on the site as well. With that said, if you have been to other temples in China, this one is very similar.

Kai Fu consists of several small temples and the Kai Fu Temple itself. One of the main temples in Changsha. Beautiful, atmospheric, special buddhist shops all around it. If you wish you can even be a volunteer there for some days or months.
