See the ornate, towering pagoda at Tianning Temple, the region's most intact temple of 1,000 years vintage. Functioning as both a Buddhist temple and monastery, the complex's main draw is its 13-story, 53.79 m (505 ft) pagoda. Constructed over five years, the structure opened in 2007. Witness the ornate artworks, flamboyant furnishings, and rich history, as well as panoramic views across the cityscape.

  • Really nice budist temple, you gonna pay but is so nice and not crowded
  • Nice temple,long history. Worth to see. After the temple you can walking a round the street. Very good location
  • The tallest pagoda in the world. 154m tall.
  • 一座古老的禪寺門票20元,天寧寶塔可以去看看費用60元,裡面有個大銅鐘敲三下要200元,這可有點貴了,以上是以人民幣計算
  • 好像幾年前曾到訪進去。今次經過,寺已閉門。
