How can I not go to Nanputuo in Xiamen?
The first time I went to Xiamen eight years ago, I climbed to the top of Nanputuo. I still don't remember the buildings in Putuo Temple. I only remember that the scenery on the top of the mountain is good.
This time, I felt that the entire temple was enlarged and the building was rebuilt. At the entrance post office, you can buy a postcard for five yuan and send it back to yourself, or buy a canvas bag with a written inscription. If you are hungry, please ask a volunteer to tell the story inside the temple.
The front door of Nanputuo Temple is next to Xiamen University, and Houshan is linked to Xiamen Botanical Garden. Can play for a long time. The greatest feeling that the entire Nanputuo Temple gave me was majestic. The furnishings between each temple and the corridor were very particular. The sorting order and color matching were well-recognized. The green vegetation was found in the Nanputuo Temple. Properly Dangdang, and the various exhibitions of Nanputuo Temple are in harmony. The treasures of Putuo Temple are solemn and the gold foil is newly decorated. The weather in Xiamen is very hot, but it can't stop the enthusiasm of the people. Next door is the famous Nanputuo vegetarian restaurant Haihui Building.
