Nanshan Temple, Sanya

4.3
#1 of 6 in Historic Sites in Sanya
Explore Nanshan Temple, a Buddhist temple known for its gargantuan Guan Jin statue and the cultural park that surrounds it. The spacious temple area was constructed in 1988, in celebration of the bi-millennial anniversary of Buddhism. Enjoy the lively, but spiritual atmosphere of the Buddhism park, nestled between the verdant foothills of Nanshan mountain and the azure ocean waters. Admire the massive, 108 m (354 ft) tall statue of the Guan Jin Buddha, dominating the park from a small, man-made island just off the coastline.

  • Went in Nanshan yourself without guides. Back and forth goes 25 bus, but travel far, min 40, so we took a taxi with women experiencing. You can storgovatsja for 100 yuan per taxi (one-way). If you go back on the bus, you should bear in mind that before he goes on the side, the bypass road, there is still construction work is in progress, so we didn't bother, and left by taxi, as well as came. Entrance 145 Yuan per person, our taxi driver Sam agreed and bought us tickets, through the entrance, so we almost stood in the queue. The territory of the temple is very large, it is necessary to take train to drive around and see all the beauty of the territory. On the way some stops where you can go out, walk, see photos. Very beautiful landscapes, temples, pagodas, statues of Buddhist gods, and the biggest statue of goddess Guanyin, a height of 108 m, which stands on an island in the sea. Go through the alley of mantras, together with believers of Chinese ran the mantras in the sky. Energy is very strong in this place, people pray everywhere zazhzhjonnye-incense sticks, red ribbons with painted on them. I advise to visit, because it is better to see the splendor than hear!
