Nanputuo Temple, Xiamen Reviews

  • The Nanputuo Temple was a beautiful place for both secular and spiritual visitors. The temple had a few of architectural highlights, a nice pagoda and a nice pond, some beautiful corridors, and lovely calligraphy on big rocks. The temple was also a big attraction to local crowd; tourists should be well prepared for a little bit of tumult. The kitchen of Nanputuo prepared great vegetarian dishes that you certainly wouldn’t want to miss, even though you were not a vegan.

  • I was here eight years ago for the first time when I started a project with graduate students from Xiamen University. I remembered I paid RMB5 for admission. I paid a few visits during my 6 months stay to hike the mountain and paying respects to Buddhas. I was here again two weeks ago. Now, no need to pay any admission, a casual walk/hike up the mountain was very satisfying both mind and body.

  • Beautiful and peaceful place. Good to combine with a walk in Botanical garden

  • A fairly expansive temple which was first founded over 1000 years ago. The temple was seriously damaged during the Cultural Revolution, during which the temple grounds were occupied by a factory, elementary school, and melon farm. After the Cultural Revolution, temple restoration began under the leadership of Master Miao Zhan, who later became the temple abbot in 1989. The temple is now one of Xiamen's most popular tourist spots, because of its beautiful architecture, and for the significance it still holds for many of the Fujianese diaspora throughout Southeast Asia.

  • Old, serene temple near Xiamen University with lots of greenery, a lotus pond and lake. One can see its beautiful pagoda from afar.
