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.
