What are the numbers and averages?
|Xuedou Temple has been marked as one of the ten great Chanzong Temples from the Southern Song Dynasty, reportedly having 1,600 years of history. However, when wondering around the majority of this complex it feels rather new, and it is likely that a number (if not all) of the structures here are replicas or refurbishments. Nevertheless, it is a good example of a Chinese temple. Built with mountains in the back ground, the 20 hectares of complex includes a pond, a temple and the hard-to-miss giant gold Buddha Maitreya.|

|If you want to make this a full day’s trip, consider taking the Xuedou Mountain Scenic Spot Walk 1.|
|It appeared most common during our visit for the local tourists to take the shuttle bus to the Yintin Pool transfer station and then take the scenic walking path back down to the temple.|
|If you do not fancy too much of a walk but would like to see another site, a view of Qianzhangyan Waterfall from Qianzhang Cliff Viewpoint is only about 15minutes walk from here.|
|There is a vegetarian restaurant here, should you be hungry or would like to try some fresh Buddhist cooking.|
