    Definitely Worth a Visit

    by Ewan62 Written Jan 4, 2014

    Liu Rong Si is a cool little temple that is definitely visit-worthy. The immediate block surrounding the temple is full of stores selling Buddhist regalia and incense, and has a laid-back vibe to it.

    Entrance is cheap and if you want to take part in the Buddhist tradition, you can grab free incense near the entrance and burn some sticks for blessings. Take a couple extra single RMB notes to give the beggars in the front.

    If you want to see the temple in full-swing try to visit on a holiday that has a religious tradition attached to it, like Hungry Ghost Festival, Yu Lan (盂蘭).
