Nanputuo Temple is the first stop in my trip. Nanputuo Temple is located on the southwest of Xiamen Island. It is surrounded by the graceful sea and the Wulao Peaks behind the temple. The Wulao Peaks is a small mountain range that rises on the island. It enjoys a very high reputation for its picturesque view of Xiamen and the surrounding district of Haicang, Gulangyu and Zhangzhou Prefecture Level City. Nanputuo Temple has many deep caves and verdant woods. Nanputuo Temple is adjacent to Xiamen University and Lu River.
It is worth mentioning that the admission of so magnificent temple is free of charge, at the same time visitors can receive free incense at the temple gate, so it is very popular.
Every time before the trip, I will have a similar mood, that is the unlimited freshness and happiness to what’s about to happened and what is about to see things and sense of unknown.
The main hall in front of Nanputuo Temple is the Hall of Heavenly Kings, two elephants, two lions, different from other temples.
