  • It is true that not noted for anything in particular, but I think that a set of things makes it interesting. 1. not is in a zone especially busy, so not there is that move is to jostling among the crowd. 2. is representative of it most of them temples in Chinese, by which while not is very special, you gives a good idea of as are the others, if not have time of see more. 3 it is on high, so you have nice views of the city. 4. easy communication with the city wall. It is connected to the wall of the city, so you practically have 2 sites to enter (paid separately).

  • 和朋友一起来烧香,管理非常规范,10元门票钱也是香火钱。从顶上俯瞰南京城的风光,风吹到脸上非常舒适。其他尽在不言中。 
  • 如果是想去看看的話倒耶還行但是比起其他地方的感覺這個優點人少,不過這樣也好因為不用擠來擠去的更好的。去的話從地鐵出來都一小段路吧不是很遠
