Guanghua Temple was first built in the second year of Chen Yongding of the Southern Dynasty (558 C.E.). It was first called "Jinxian Monastery" and was later expanded into a temple. The layout is magnificent with the outer screen wall, Emperor Hall, and the Great Buddha's Hall forming the central axis running north to south. Great Buddha Hall is a high beamed palace structure. In front of the Emperor Hall are two stone buildings from the second year of the Northern Song Dynasty and one is carved with the "Ushnisha Buddhist Incantations." It is an excellent place to experience Buddhist culture.
