    • Editor's Description
      The temple itself consists of four main halls housing numerous statues of Buddha and his disciples. Principle features include an ancient iron bell (rung 108 times on the New Year to bring good fortune to mankind) and the Longhua Pagoda dating back to the Song Dynasty. The Pagoda, seen in Steven Spielberg's Empire of the Sun, isn't open to the public. Tourists unafraid of crowds should visit in March when the peach blossoms are in bloom.
