(600+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site Tourist Spot
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. Use our Sanya trip itinerary planner to add Nanshan Temple and other attractions to your Sanya vacation plans.
