This simple but very active temple is curiously accessed from the west rather than the south, where the entrance to Buddhist temples usually lies. The main hall, restored with new doors, encloses a large modern statue of Sakyamuni, seated lily-top between two walls glinting with gilded luóhàn . Other lesser halls include a trinity of golden Buddhist effigies and a small shrine to the Buddhist god of the underworld, Dizang Wang.
