Nanputuo Temple, Xiamen Reviews

  • Place which is very calm and full of positive energy. I found it better than Xiamen university. Located just near the exit gate of Xiamen University. It is a Buddha temple with three back to back buildings with wonderful idols. Temple premise also has a vegetarian restaurant. Please do not mistake it for Indian vegetarian. Their preparations and way of cooking is very very different. It takes around an hour to go around the place.

  • 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.

  • a spiritual place among the modern skyscrapers. Close to Xiamen University, has a lovely water garden just in front. Beautiful decorations with traditional elements enriched the roofs. The hill over it deserves a visit too.

  • Buddhist temple. Fully renowned one. Since it is located in the heart of the Xiamen, always crowded. Just 100m from the Xiamen university gate (siming campus)

  • Great temple to visit. Best place in Xiamen.
