Description
Lingyin Si translates to the Temple of the Soul's Retreat. While it was originally founded in AD 326, it has been rebuilt several times and now resembles more of a theme park than a meditative temple. ... Read more
In the main hall, there is an enormous Buddha statue created in 1956 from 24 sections of camphor and gilded in gold. For those looking for a more natural experience, there is also a limestone cliff nearby which resembles a holy mountain in India and contains 380 Buddhist rock carvings within its four caves.

It's a great place to relax and get some fresh air and fresh thoughts. The scenery is amazing, too.

The temple is large, attractive, and certainly worth a visit in it's own right. More importantly, it is a great focal point for exploring the surrounding area and other smaller temples that you might not get to otherwise.

The Lingyin temple is quite large, with multiple different worship and prayer rooms. The whole complex is peaceful and quiet, which makes any meditation you have to do even better.
