Beijing, China

The city's best temple. Located on Wenshu road in the north end of town. I stumbled upon this place when I was cycling through the city. If you go during lunchtime, they have cheap vegetarian options for guests. A good budget tip is to rent a bike from your hostel or guesthouse for the day.

First to Review

The grandest of Chengdu's Buddhist temples (and set in a cool neighborhood of nifty little lanes), Wenshu Monastery is a fantastic collection of Chinese Buddhist halls, gates, gardens and pavilions, and is a popular place for the people of Chengdu to come and make offerings or just enjoy the grounds. The temple and its surrounding neighborhood is one of my favorite places for photography in Chengdu, and though this temple is a reconstruction (like most temples in China, sadly), it's still got loads of character, and more than merits a visit.
