Inspirock Rating:
4.1/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web
A sprawling and important Taoist temple complex, The Ancestral Temple provides a calm spot to unwind in the midst of downtown. Initially built in the 11th century, this cultural treasure reveres a god that controls the waters of Guangdong. Known as the Zen City, the ancient temple complex features a number of impressive statues and intricate carvings. The main hall, built in 1372, has a place for sacrifices and features a statue of Xuan Wu, a warrior god with gilded head and feet. If your timing's right, you may see the locals exercising Tai Chi, or a lion dance performance. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to The Ancestral Temple and many more Foshan attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Foshan tour planner.
