Beijing to Shanghai Sights

West Garden Temple (Xīyuánsì)

Updated 05/28/2013

Fodor's Review

This temple is most notable for the Hall of 500 Arhats (wubai luohan tang), which houses 500 gold-painted statues of these Buddhist guides. They are humorous carvings: one struggling with dragons, another cradling a cat.
