What people are saying:

I came to Nan'ao Island in Shantou by chance. I didn’t do any strategy before going to the island. I just wanted to look at the sea. I didn’t realize that this island is very big and beautiful. It is said to be 3 times the size of Macau (unverified), 3 days. There was too little time, so I rushed to Shen'ao Town in the morning on the last day of the outlying islands. After visiting Zongbingfu, I asked the locals about a temple called Nanshan Temple recommended to me by a enthusiastic bus driver. Follow the village...turn right and left Turn around... see a quiet temple. Entering the exquisite mountain gate, a group of laymen in the temple are preparing for the next day's transcendence ceremony. I visited the temple quietly. First of all, I was attracted by the exquisite internal and external structure, carved beams, painted buildings, cornices, wings, and glazed glazed halls. Although Nanshan Temple is not big, it only has 4 nuns, but it makes people feel very grand and solemn. I also became acquainted with the dignified, young and lovely Goshan nun. At noon, the little master left me to eat fast food in the temple... After leaving the temple and returning to Shantou, I "asked Du Niang" to find out that Nanshan Temple had experienced abandonment, and there are various stories to be learned by the believers who are interested in the temple and come to visit the temple. Feast 🙏

Additional Information


Nanshan Temple, located on Nanao Island, Nanao County, Shantou City, has the Jinshan mountain to its back and Meihua Village to its face. It is surrounded by ancient trees and thus tranquil. The temple is not large, but the structure is elaborate. The house is engraved with exquisite flowers and colorful glaze. There are not many locals worshiping here—you cannot even see the incense stove or smell the unique flavor of candles. However, the monastery built a wall to record the followers who paid for its repair work. Each donor's name is engraved on the stone tablet, which has become an important memorial of the temple.
