A MUST Visit when you are in Putuoshan. Serene and quiet environment. Be sure to walk around the compound and marvel at the architectural of the temple. I believe it was just recently renovated.

Exquisite temples with cravings. Not as crowded as puji temple. Humble vegetarian lunch with locals at RMB 5 each.
