  • Stone moved by bus from Southern bus terminal focus of Shijiazhuang city. Before getting to the bus terminal, Zhao province everyone was being unloaded at the Kashiwa forest Temple before forcibly. Because the building is relatively new, "1000 temples" is is not felt. Also the temple worshippers and tourists in both crowds, was buzzing. Stone bus back to Shijiazhuang city not out from the Terminal in the State of Zhao Prefecture, Park Boulevard, diagonally across from the Terminal, waiting for customers.

  • Hebei province is distinguished by its construction Orange and yellow. This temple is no exception, everything is those colors. According to the residents of that place, the temple was exclusive for women. They were there to pray for the family and their homes. Perhaps they are right, because when we visited it the vast majority were women. Through its corridors and gardens is perceived much peace. I recommend that before entering the temple, you stop to contemplate a flower Lotus located opposite the temple garden.
