Temple of the Six Banyan Trees – Liurong Temple

The Temple of the Six Banyan Trees has a history of more than 1,400 years and is one of the city’s key Buddhist temples. It was built in 537, formerly known as Changshou Temple. It was renamed Jinghui Temple and later renamed to Liurong Temple (Temple of the Six Banyan Trees).

Though the mountain gate you’ll find Tianwang Hall, there is Six Banyan (Flower) pagoda in the temple, which is a famous ancient high-rise building in Guangzhou, and Daxiong Baodian Hall. Daxiong Hall enshrines three large Buddha statues carved in brass from the second year of Emperor Kangxi (1663). These Buddha statues are the largest ancient bronze statues in Guangdong Province.

There is a six-ancestor hall in the Shaying Garden in the temple, which is dedicated to the bronze statue of Hui Neng, the sixth generation of Zen Buddhism.

Entry is 5 RMB and an extra 10 RMB for the pagoda.
