One among the four best Buddha temples in Wuhan, the Guiyuan temple was built during the Qing Dynasty. The temple has 5 courtyards with 4 of them in four direction and one located in the middle. With subsequent decades the temple was expanded to its present size which covers an area of 46,900 sqmts.

The highlights of the temple are:

  • The Depository of Buddhist texts is in the northern courtyard. A two storied building which contains a lot of Buddhist scriptures, records and relics.
  • The Hall of Arahats or also known as Hall of Lohans. It is in the southern courtyard and was destroyed in the war in 1852 A.D and was later rebuilt in 1895 A.D. The hall has about 500 statues of ‘Lohans’ and still the place doesn’t look crowded. They all are life like sizes and are spread across in an interesting layout.
  • Great Buddha’s hall is in the central courtyard and is adorned with many statues. There’s a Sakyamuni statue and standing beside him are two of his disciples Ananda and Kasyapa. The Avalokiteshware statue stands tall behind Sakyamuni accompanied by two dragon statues of a boy and girl.
