What people are saying:

The first trip of the New Year is very important, starting a blessing trip, praying for a good luck of the year! So, where is the blessing going? Today to introduce a good place~ the Lingnan First Sacred Land Guoen Temple was built in the Tang Dynasty in 683. It is called the six founders and three great soba together with the six founders of Guangzhou Kozen Ji Temple, the kujiho Dojo, and the kujiho Dojo. The temple is famous both at home and abroad for being the former residence of the six ancestors bodhisattva, and the sacred place of the six ancestors chanting, she ji and editing the six ancestors' "hot temple scriptures". Take off the impetuous urban life jacket, enjoy the relaxation and peace of the whole body, feel the freshness of the clouds, come to a love for you and me, bring your friends and family to take a relaxing vacation~ Weekend two days and one night's leisurely trip can be arranged, Blessings next year smooth and smooth!

Additional Information

Introduction

First built in the first year of the Hongdao Reign Period, Guoen Temple has a long history and was the hometown of Huineng, the Sixth Ancestor of Chan and the place where he died. Guoen Temple, Guangxiao Temple in Guangzhou and Nanhua Temple in Shaoguan are collectively known as the three major ancestral temples of Chinese Zen. Eminent Japanese monks even called it "the earliest ancestral temple." The temple was built beside mountains, and many of its features remain as they were in the Tang Dynasty. The architectural style south of the Five Ridges was added through considerate planning. With quiet and beautiful surroundings, the temple has seen countless worshipers for thousands of years and is the best destination for pilgrimage.
