The temple has multiple places of worship within the premises. Also, has a big statue of two sided Guiyang and a recently built pagoda/tower. The most interesting part of the temple is a place with... More

One of the best temples in Wuhan this is an attraction which is in wonderful condition with a large collection of perfect statues and a great collection of Buddhist artefacts. Counting the 500 Luhans (Buddhist Disciples) is a tradition. The collection of 500 statues (all very different) is a local custom they say can tell your future when done in... More

This is the main temple in Wuhan that had over half a million visitor during Chinese New Year day. There is a big plaza with a giant Guan Yin statue but even more impressive is the 108 Arhat inside the temple that's suppose to tell your fortune for the year

Was there on 7 Aug 2016, this is an amazingly resolute statue of Guan Yin in the temple! You can see the palaces like if I were in the Buddhist temple in anywhere of the world. Such an amazing place to be

Wuhan has several temples, but Guiyuan has to be the best by far. It is in Hanyang, a quick metro ride from any of the other parts of Wuhan. The areas around the temple are all currently under construction, which kinda kills the mood. The fee is 20 yuan to go inside. The entrance is just like any other temple,... More

This temple is maybe the biggest temple you can visit in Wuhan, you can admire a lot of differents Budha. You have also some delicious vegan food inside. It is better to visit it during hot weather.

We needed to kill a few hours so we visited this temple... it was alright, but we won't allowed to take pics of any Buddha statues or anything really worth while from a tourist point of view.... overall it was fine, but felt that it could have been better. Also, it was 20RMB per person to get in, and watch... More

Great place to visit, probably best to go in Wuhan. 500 gold arhat - you can spend hours finding your special one. Also a really good gem shop where you need to give thanks to Buddha for any purchases.
