Fodor's Review

Originally built about AD 300, this temple has been rebuilt and renovated numerous times. The temple's main draw is its copper Hongwu bell, cast in 1183 and weighing 3.5 tons. Much of the temple today looks very new, but it's still an interesting contrast with the surrounding skyscrapers, shopping malls, and luxury boutiques.
