Lonely Planet review for Jingci Zen Monastery
East of the Su Causeway along the shore of West Lake, set against the hillside across the road from the Leifeng Pagoda, is the peaceful Jingci Zen Monastery; check out the vast effigy of Sakyamuni in the main hall and the magnificent 1000-arm statue of Guanyin (Buddhist goddess) in the Guanyin Hall ( 观音殿; Guānyīn Diàn).
