  • Visiting Jimingsi Temple was an unforgetable experience! The steep steps lad us to beautiful Temple and Tower. At back on the Jimingsi Temple was an entrance to the big town wall.  more »
  • Nice place to worship the godness and its currently under some renovations to expend its vicinity. They actually charge a admin fee to visit.  more »
  • This is an old and beautiful temple, located just next to the lake. While it is possible to visit the temple, we found it more impressive from afar.  more »

  • 古雞鳴寺 是南京最古老古剎之一 南朝梁武帝在此興建同泰寺 為南朝四百八十寺首剎 梁武帝曾四次在此捨身出家 有感大乘佛教的菩薩慈悲思想而積極提倡素食 於公元五百一十一年頒布“斷酒肉文” 令天下所有僧尼不得食肉 古雞鳴寺從此成了漢傳佛教吃素之發源地 平時來拜拜還不錯 在櫻花花季時特別美 但建議早點來 人會很多 門票:全票10元rmb 2016/3/16
  • Jiming Temple is said to have the cherry blossom is beautiful, hope you can take a look this year, next to the temple area in Xuanwu Lake, from the ancient city walls close, Metro to reach. Tickets are expensive, to walk was good.
