Been there years ago and still a nice place to visit again. If you are used to visit temples in Asia this may be not so impressive.

It's not a must-see temple but I recommend to visit there if you have plenty of time. It take around 5-10 minutes from the subway station. You can also walk to GuangXiao Si from there too.

A quiet and peaceful experience. This is one of only about 3 pagodas left in Guangzhou. You cannot enter the pagoda but the rest of the temple grounds are open. You can hear monks chanting at different times. It was a place that adopting western couples would visit to pray as they waited for the adoption process for their child... More

If one is into temples, do check this out. One can also offer prayers and even see a monk. Part of Chinese culture.

I have been to the temple several times. I feel at so much peace there. They serve some excellent tea somedays. You can chant 'Namo Ami Buddha' or just sit around the 6 banyan trees.

It's not that this temple is bad or boring, but there are definitely more impressive temples in or near Guangzhou. The entry fee is low so no issues there and finding it isnt difficult either, for sure if you want to pack in as much as possible on your trip, you can spare perhaps 30-45mins to 'get this done' and...

This is a very peaceful place in the middle of the city. Take a tour to learn the history and stop to admire the many beautiful Buddhas and other statues of kings/sorcerers (in the front). We didn't see many Pagodas, but I really liked this one.

This temple site is steeped in history, and the efforts to restore and maintain it are indeed commendable - after quickly figuring out how entrance works (the ticket office is a short walk from where the actual entrance is), we were greeted by very polite staff who handed us some incense sticks to use during our peaceful stroll through these...

We strolled around at the nice campus and appreciated the old trees and beautiful architecture but it was pretty average if you have seen similar temples. The tickets were cheap though, so overall it was okay.
