Religious Site Tourist Spot
Built in 1658 with delicate architecture and carefully designed gardens, Guiyuan Temple covers 1.9 ha (4.7 ac) in Wuhan city’s west Hanyang district. Enter the apricot-colored gate to see five courtyards of the temple and enjoy the serene garden outside the northern pavilion, dedicted to three western saints. Marvel at statues of 500 Lohan, each of them having a different expression on his face and weighing less than 25 kg (55 lb), kept in the vermillion colored Lohan Pavilion. Admire gilded statues of Eighteen Arhats, original followers of Mahayana Buddhism, and numerous other relics and scrolls kept in the Sutra Pavilion. Take bus 401 to Giyuhan Si station.
