#1 of 11 in Historic Sites in Wuhan
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. A visit to Guiyuan Temple represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Wuhan journey planner to plot your vacation.

Where to stay in Wuhan

In clusters along the river sit perhaps the most popular accommodations in Wuhan. The newer, chain hotels sit together in shiny commercial districts overlooking the water, while simple guesthouses sit in the older districts, on the more atmospheric streets of the city. Away from the river, on either bank, metro stations and parks become the centers of interest for most hoteliers and guesthouses owners, with a good mix of upmarket and budget options to be found. Some of the most luxurious options in the city lie to the east of the center, including resorts and upmarket branded hotels overlooking the lake.
