We stopped at this temple as part of our 6-day stay in Guangzhou. This was our first time ever visiting a temple, and we thought it was quite lovely. It was a very serene place, with incense burning everywhere. It feels a little weird treating a place like this as a tourist destination, but we would recommend taking a look if you are in the area. It's not a large place, you can see all of it within 30 minutes. I would recommend having a guide who is familiar with the place.
