Lingu Temple and Pagoda (Línggüsì and línggütă)
Lingu Temple and Pagoda (Línggüsì and línggütă) Review
Close to the Sun Yat-sen Memorial, this temple commemorates Xuan Zang, the roving monk who brought Buddhist scriptures back to China from India. Seek out the Beamless Hall, a magnificent 14th-century structure, today given over to propagandistic "historical" reenactments. Farther up the hill is a nine-story granite pagoda built in 1929 as a memorial to fallen revolutionaries. Vendors sell balloons to toss from the upper balcony.
