Nanputuo Temple Lujiang University, Xiamen, Fujian, China
5. 1,000 Year Old Nanputuo Temple Page 1

A good place to visit. They serve a wonderful vegetarian dinner here. We have eaten here several times. Take a tour here if you have the time. Marvelously restored, it has been here for a 1,000 years.

South Putuo Temple is situated below the Five Old Gentlemen Peaks in the southern part of the island of Xiamen. It was first built in the Tang Dynasty and is one of the sacred places of Buddhism in Southern Fujian. Inside the temple there are the Heaven King's Hall, the Daxiong Hall, the Great Compassion Hall, all of which are built in an exquisite and grand style.
