Temple of the Six Banyan Trees (Liurong Si) Tours

star-4
384 Reviews
Temple of the Six Banyan Trees (Liurong Si)
Among Guangzhou’s most significant religious landmarks, the Buddhist Temple of the Six Banyan Trees dates back to AD 537 and is still active today, with a community of monks. Visitors marvel at the vibrantly painted exterior of the temple’s Flower Pagoda, which soars some 187 feet (57 meters) high.

The Basics
Built to house Buddhist relics that had been transported to China from India, the Temple of the Six Banyan Trees—aka Liurong Temple—is a highlight of any Guangzhou sightseeing itinerary. Featured on most tours of the area, the temple complex comprises several buildings, from the Flower Pagoda and Great Buddha’s Hall (home of three bronze Buddhas) to the Hall of Friendship (constructed as a gesture of friendship between China and Thailand).

Things to Know Before You Go
  • True to name, the temple is known for its striking banyan trees, some of which are hundreds of years old.
  • Though you can admire the exterior, the interior of the Flower Pagoda isn’t currently accessible to visitors.

How to Get There
Take metro line 1 or 2 to Gongyuanqian Station, then walk the short distance to the temple. Numerous bus lines also serve the landmark. Sightseeing tours take care of the logistics for you.

When to Get There
The Temple of the Six Banyan Trees is typically open daily during daytime hours—verify before going. To take full advantage of the complex’s various attractions, get there at least an hour prior to closing.

Festivals at the Temple of the Six Banyan Trees
The temple is busiest during several key events every year: the Lunar New Year, the Lantern Festival, and the Spring Festival, when people flock to the complex to light joss (incense) sticks. Visiting during those times is an exciting experience, but be prepared for crowds.
