Lonely Planet review

Zhèngdìng’s most famous monastery is Longxing Temple ( 隆兴寺; Lóngxìng Sì), more popularly known as Dafo Temple or Big Buddha Temple, which is located in the east of town. The standout hall is the vast Pavilion of Great Mercy ( 大悲阁; Dàbēi Gé), where a bronze 21.3m colossus of Guanyin rises, cast in AD 971 and sporting a third eye.
