Nanchan Temple of Wuxi, Wuxi

(190 reviews on the web)
Religious Site
Set in a bustling area around Nanchan Street in the ancient downtown quarter of Wuxi, Nanchan Temple of Wuxi serves as one of the most important Buddhist temple complexes south of the Yangtse River. Enter its impressive gate towering over a bustling pedestrian zone and you can climb a seven-story pagoda for a sweeping panorama. Actively visited by locals, this sixth-century temple provides many monk ceremonies and activities to watch. It also has antique stalls with Chinese memorabilia, such as stamps and coins. Take a boat ride on the canal or observe the slow, fashionable life on the water lane along the canal. A nearby market with some 500 shops makes a good spot to buy souvenirs and offers great opportunities for eating. Put Nanchan Temple of Wuxi into our Wuxi vacation builder and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • 知道南禪寺的夜景美,所以特意留了很多的時間在這裡。白天先去逛了一下,等待着晚上再看夜景。索性遊客不多,遊玩起來還是蠻愜意的  more »
  • Nikko Hotel from 5.6 minutes on foot. China seems to be building. Lit up at night, it was beautiful. Unlike the atmosphere during the day, both should go.
