Updated: December 31,2020


Nanhai Guanyin Temple was built in 990 AD (that is, the fifth year of the Chunhua reign of the Northern Song Dynasty). It is a palace-style temple which faces south, and has a Yudao (a road used by the emperor) with dragon and lotus relief. A 30 mu pond in front of the temple is covered in lotus flowers. With thousands of worshippers visiting every year, the temple has become the largest Buddhist shrine in Foshan.
