Guiyuan Temple, Wuhan
(4.1/5 based on 160 reviews on the web)
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.

  • Come early! Visitors need to know only one thing-at 17.00 a large part of the monastery is closed to tourists, and there begins the service. Dive into the monastery life-you will walk beside you and monks will carry out their everyday lives. Wash, build, clean, meditate. But even after you close you can sit by the pond, watching the life of fishes and turtles. Taking pictures in temples, but if you really want to ... On the streets, courtyards-a lot of interesting things. Cat lovers will especially appreciate-seals there. made quite good.
