This active Buddhist temple is one of the oldest in Nanjing, and really worth visiting. I found it to be quite different to many of the other temples in China, with it’s bright yellow-orange walls and unusual layout. The temple is centred around a tall tower-like structure, but with the other buildings somewhat haphazardly clustered around it.

Sadly my camera decided to give up on me, but here’s a few great photos courtesy of Wikipedia!

If you’re keen to walk along a section of the city wall, there is a great short-cut out the back of this temple directly to the wall.
