What people are saying:

The temple is well built but it runs too commercially, the unsigned monks only know that they want money and they lose their face without it! The temple's rules and regulations have been lost! Very disappointed!

Introduction

Located in the downtown commercial area of Chongqing's Yuzhong District surrounding the Liberation Monument, Luohan Temple is rare among China's ancient temples, in that it is located at the center of the city. Built during the Northern Song Dynasty, it is called the Luohan Temple because it contains nearly 500 individual statues of Buddhist saints (called Luohans or Arhats). Luohan Temple is often full of worshipers and thick with the scent of burning incense. Visitors to the temple can "count the saints" or even search for their own patron saint. Ever since the release of the 2006 Chinese comedy "Crazy Stone", Luohan Temple has been a very popular place for tourists visiting Chongqing.
