    Nice Place to Visit

    Old Temple surrounded by skyscrappers. Nice grounds. As of this writing some areas closed off due to nearby construction. Beautiful temple. Some interesting areas and displays.

    Small temple

    It's funny how you can find so peaceful place from the city centre. the cost is 10CNY enter the temple and it is quite small but worth to visit. Some parts were under construction.

Additional Information

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.
