Reputedly the best-preserved Buddhist temple in Fenghuang, this convent features impressive red walls with carved Kanji characters within yellow circles. Simple and compelling, its traditional-style murals by a hometown artist depict the core of the modern understanding of Buddhism, illustrating various stories from Buddha's life. The artist, who returned to Fenghuang at the age of 78 to devote himself to painting, also donated a sizeable collection of his bronze Buddha statues to the temple.
