“Temple like every other temple in China but beautiful park”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2012

In my opinion the visit is worth it because of the park, that's what makes the difference between any other temples i've seen in china so far. The temple and the pagoda are nothing special (from the pagoda there's a beautiful panoramic view on the area). The whole park in Zhongshan is worth a visit, but it's gonna take at least one day to visit all the main attractions there.

“Beautiful temple with great views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2012

Definitely worth a visit, it's a nice temple, with praying rooms for different purposes (when my gf told me one of the Buddhas stands for fertility, I had to run, though), and it has nice views over the city and Xuanwu lake due to its position on a hill top.

“Linggu Si”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2012

I think this pagoda and temple are well worth visiting. I have been to many temples/ pagodas in Asia and this one is beautiful! I would not miss it and would definitely go again.

“Beautiful scenery, fresh air, traditional Chinese”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2011

Linggu tower is 8 stories, but if you take breaks on the balconies, you get to take in the views around. The grounds are beautiful and clean, and the trees must be centuries old. The air is fresh away from the city too. There are also several memorials and temples in the grounds around Linggu worth seeing.
