Tianning Temple, Changzhou

4.2
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.

Where to stay in Changzhou

In this place of business, rather than tourism, you're far more likely to find luxury hotels and business hotels aimed at one-night stays than budget accommodations in Changzhou. Chain hotels sit among the newer commercial developments throughout town, with some upmarket and standard options to choose from. The odd guesthouse can be found in older, more residential parts, along with apartment rentals. Stay close to the central train station if planning onward travel.
