Guiyuan Temple, Wuhan

(4.1/5 based on 170 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. Make Guiyuan Temple a centerpiece of your Wuhan vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Wuhan itinerary planner.

  • 進寺院需要購買10元門票, 算是香油錢, 一進門就會有人遞上一柱香供參拜用。 園很大, 大概每隔半小時會有義務導賞, 所以不用怕迷路或看不懂。 園內有一座小城, 一個很大的觀音塑像, 但最有趣的是羅漢堂內的500尊羅漢像, 人們都愛玩當地的"數羅漢", 數完還可以購買詩文解釋, 信不信佛沒大關係, 反正它是閃閃亮亮的金屬卡, 是絕好的紀念品。
