Nanputuo Temple (Nán pü tuó sí)
Nanputuo Temple (Nán pü tuó sí) Review
Dating from the Tang Dynasty, Nanputuo Temple has roofs decorated with brightly painted clustered flowers, sinewy serpents, and mythical beasts. It has been restored many times, most recently in the 1980s, following the Cultural Revolution. Pavilions on either side of the main hall contain tablets commemorating the suppression of secret societies by the Qing emperors. As the most important of Xiamen's temples, it is nearly always the center of a great deal of activity as monks and worshippers mix with tour groups. To get here, take Bus 1 or 2 from the port.
