So as soon as I got to the gate there were 2 people begging from the outside. No idea if they were fake or real beggars.

Walking inside you see again a drum and bell tower. A reoccurring theme in all of these places.

Walking further in you can see the monks working at the place trying to maintain it.

Definitely a quiet place that is free. I tried to take a picture of some of them doing their daily chores some of them are camera shy.

Summary-
Free! Outside is also a park where young Chinese people do break dancing.
Interesting life style of modern day monks that aren't rich
Bathrooms are squatters

A really quiet temple. I was disappointed that some buildings were under restoration. But this is a good thing after all.
It is a "working temple" so you will see people praying and burning stuff
This is a place were I took one of my favorite picture.
I like the atmosphere
