  • This temple is a bit out of the main tourist attractions (line 4, Caishikou exit D and then quite a long walk) and it's not particularly beautiful although very old and historic. I found my visit wort...  more »
  • Place brings tranquility. I liked the fact that we can meet these monks. And the temple is very beautiful.

  • 法院寺在人们的心中虽没有那么大的知名度,但实在是值得一去的好地方,现在经过整修,可以参观的地方明显大了很多,初春时节,满园的各色丁香盛开,加上海棠玉兰,绝对是拍照写生爱好者的“圣地”  more »

  • Fayuan Temple is famous for its Clove, and it is one of the Three Flower Temples. I suggest that you visit here in the beginning of April, when we Chinese having the "Qingming Festival". At that time, the Cloves blossom, and whole temple is filled with the fragrance of Clove. Besides, there are many cats, and they seemed not afraid of people, lovely creatures:)
  • It's a 1 km walk (15min) from exit D of the Caishikou metro station on line 4. This is active Buddhist temple and you'll see monks strolling the grounds and worshipers burning incense. Most exhibit areas are closed, thus I think there is reduced gate fee of 5 RMB. Of all the temples I visited, this temple alone had 4 beggars at the front entrance. One beggar sat at the steps of the ticket office, and he helped me identify that it was the ticket booth as there is no sign to indicate ticket sales. There must have been no tourist activity since I tapped the window to wake the ticket agent. He seemed in a deep sleep. I ventured into the open spaces and open doorways without any map or signs to mark the way as there are no English signs within grounds to indicate the landmarks. The bell and drum towers were closed. Mainly, the buildings in the center were open. these were buildings of worship with knee pads set in the front for worshipers to bow. There are a few cats roam the area.
