Hall of three god's 6. Hall of god of wealth 7. Wanfo stupa8. Seven cascade water fall 9. Prajna valley 10. Cherry valley Reclining buddha - located top of the hill and the view from the bottom is a bliss - the water that swipes each slabs and gets to the pool which is green color with many of big koi fishes. Climbing the steps to reach the top have a clear view of the nature at its best. Mind-blowing architecture which was built decades back. Old drums , stone cravings , praying arenas are quite interesting. The place is so calm and peaceful. The buddha with that smiling face is amazing sculpture - damn positivity 🙏... Thousand buddha cave - was interesting and good we can find many creativity at its best inside and can see the old well( mouth not so big) near the exit area. City gold temple with 3000 years old tree and fossil trees, longetivity stone that are really a natural gem , with kind people to explain each and everything . The pools with centre spray attractions are really good to see. Jiagnan gaint buddha - very most of the prayers done, people come here and worship for wellness , health and wealth. Many Monks are seen - which makes ones to admire their discipline. Thousand hand bodhisattva , golden buddha in the pool surrounded with golden lotus , mountain cravings depicting the scenario's are really impressive. Statue on top of the dragon fish and another statue on top of an animal made with pool entrance inside like a cave is way beyond words to describe .Overall the best experience in my life , will never forget and will never hesitate to go again.. will always recommend for one to have their inner peace & love #dafotemple #buddha #xinchang
