Speaking of Chongqing, what do you think of the representative spots? Hongyadong? Li Ziba? Yangtze River Cableway? In fact, there are so many famous places in Chongqing, such as the Luohan Temple hidden in the downtown area. Luohan Temple is located in Minzu Road, Yuzhong District, not far from Jiefang Monument in downtown Chongqing. I believe that many people know about the Luohan Temple from the famous movie "Crazy Stone". Although the Luohan Temple has a thousand years of history, but because it is even more popular, it has become a must-see for many foreign tourists to Chongqing. Attractions. Built in the Northern Song Dynasty, the Luohan Temple is located in the most prosperous Yuzhong District of Chongqing. It is famous for its 500 Luohan statues. It is said that the Luohan Temple is very effective, and it is conveniently located in the city center, so the incense here has been very strong. The most peculiar thing about Luohan Temple is its contrast. The Luohan Temple itself is a very typical ancient building with a flying horn, and behind it, it is a modern skyscraper. No matter how Chongqing changes, the high-rise buildings are no longer high. The Luohan Temple has not changed. Whether it is a foreign friend or a local Chinese in Chongqing, they will come here to burn incense and pray. Outside is the bustling streets of Chongqing.

The famous name of Luohan Temple is attributed to the movie "Crazy Stone" which first let everyone know Chongqing. The location of the Luohan Temple can be considered as a big hidden in the city, even in the most lively Xiaoshizi station in Yuzhong District. A 10-minute walk from the entrance of the Yangtze River Cableway is the gate of the Luohan Temple.
Compared to the surrounding skyscrapers, the entrance to the Luohan Temple is small and low-key.
If there are not a few beggars at the door, my first impression will be better. Although the entrance is small, there are not many small spaces in the interior of the Luohan Temple. In particular, the well-preserved Cliff Buddha statues and Luo Han Tang, as well as the last lighting hall, can reflect the temperament of Luohan Temple. The more you go back, the fewer tourists there are, and the more dilapidated the building. There are almost no visitors in the lighting hall, and the building has not been repaired for many years. Because of the plot of the movie, I also ran to the final court to find the sewers drilled by the characters in the drama, but did not find them.
Around the Luohan Temple, in addition to the hustle and bustle, there are many gentlemen who look at the fortune teller. Some gentlemen have a bad business, while others can be surrounded by believers. Across the street, the status is also very high.
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.
