What travelers say:

South Putuo or Nanputuo 南普陀寺 is a famous Buddhist temple founded in the Tang Dynasty. It locates on the southeast very close to Xiamen University. Nanputuo is a beautiful place with a small pond and nice territory. There is a small temple in the middle of the complex with the statue of 46 handed Bothisattva Guanyin. It looks impressive. The entrance is free. The complex is rather big itself with monuments and halls. I highly recommend to visit it during your trip to Xiamen.

The temple originated was built during the Tang Dynasty and was rebuilt by the Qing Emperor Kangxi. Because like Puji Temple on Putuo Mountain it was also dedicated to Guanyin, it was given the name South Putuo Temple. It is a Buddhist temple famous in southern Fujian and even across the whole country. This place is a must visit if you wish to pray. Behind the temple, you can find Wulao Mountain, one of the “Eight Major Landscapes” of Xiamen. Visitors are able to climb the mountain
