Temple continues towards the mountains and the people have confidence in the legs to the top place is about 40 minutes. Women wore sandals were so severe. Trekking, climbing and sense of accomplishment. Slowly up the rest along the way, even where there is, so could I. Here your buns, delicious.

  • The Nanputuo Temple is located on the southeast of Xiamen Island. That is why it is also called South Putuo Temple. This temple is generally crowded. So keep some time viewing different part. There is also a nice vegetarian temple inside. Hence, do not worry if you get hungry!
  • The temple is one of my favorite places to visit in Xiamen.
  • This is the best restaurant in the nanputuo temple. It is a thousand year old building. We are having a vegan Buddhist dinner
  • Well maintained but as it is free it is hetter to avoid to go during Chinese holidays. Wonderful photos can be done.
  • One of the must-go tourist places in Xiamen, Fujian Province. This buddhist temple is very interesting with scenic area providing people with a refreshing and religious experience.
