Peaceful... once you are inside

This place is huge. Not as stunning or as beautiful as some, but the feeling of peace once inside is palpable. The beggars outside prick your conscience though.

We really enjoyed this. Our driver suggested to stop here. I am so glad we did. It was such a cold day, we walked around and saw so many sights with little pogodas, budhas and little shops. A very interesting hours walk around inside. I actually took some great photos and now have 2 permently on my wall. It also... More

When you come to Harbin, you're NOT expecting to really see temples because that title and task belongs to an ancient capital like Bei Jing and Xi An. However, this temple is similar to that of Guo Zi Jian of Beijing! Visited on 12 Sep 2016 right after celebrating my birthday with friends, I saw the many palaces and gates... More

Interesting place to see, there are more temples here than I expected, it's fairly large. It's an active temple so it's great to have that authentic feel.

Temple of bliss does not offer you anything different than the other temples. My own opinion is that if you are not religious person then it could be said that if you have seen one temple or two then you have seen all of them.

Great temple located on a fairly large piece of land. Well maintained and clean. many buildings located within the temple grounds. Take your time and see all. Only costs 10rmb to enter. It's located very close to Harbin Amusement park.

The Temple of Bliss was the highlight of the visit to Harbin. Peaceful, large, full of religious areas surronded by enough empty space so you can walk around. The ambiance makes it easy to forget that you are in a large city (more than 5 million people in the urban area). Take your time to appreciate the architecture, the devotion... More

This Temple is well situated in the centre of the city, and on the day we visited there were very few other visitors making it easy to get around. The grounds are well maintained and buildings conveniently laid out to make visiting easy.

Not a big area and if you didn't have a tour guide or knew its history beforehand, probably not worth seeing. It was very well maintained and nice looking though.
