Temple of the Six Banyan Trees

The Temple of the Six Banyan Trees is a 537 AD Buddhist temple in Guangzhou, Southern China. The Chinese have rebuilt the temple twice, in 1097 during the Northern Song dynasty and in 1373 AD during the Ming dynasty. Tourists in the Guangzhou area visit the temple for blessings especially after adopting children from China. The Flower Pagoda on the Temple of the Six Banyan Trees is a spectacle that symbolizes the architectural genius of ancient China. The temple’s history is well defined by the change of names from Changshou Temple to Jinghui Temple before adopting its present name.

  • Admire the colourful Temple of the Six Banyan Trees from the ground or climb to the top of the 17-storey architectural wonder from where you can admire the scenic Guangzhou.
  • Experience the architecturally rich temple by taking a tour to the hall of Mahavira, which houses an enormous Golden Buddha or the Tianwan hall next to the mountain gate.
  • Drive along Duobao, Baohau, and Longjin roads for a unique glimpse into the traditional Cantonese architecture, which was popular in Guangzhou, in the old days.

Guangzhou’s traffic system entails buses, ferries, bikes, and the metro. A Yangchengtong Card is convenient when using public transport as it gives you access to almost all transport systems, some shops and restaurants, and when hiring a car or bicycle. The Chinese encourage cycling as it is fast and does not pollute the environment. You can access the Temple of the Six Banyan Trees through the metro, buses, or by cycling when within the city. Whilst within the temple, a walk is the best way to experience the serenity and beauty of the temple.
