Hǎihuì Temple

Buddhist Site in Guōyù

This Buddhist temple, where Minister Chen studied, is dominated by its two magnificent brick pagodas. The 20m-high Shělì Tǎ (舍利塔) is almost 1100 years old. Towering above it, the octagonal Rúlái Tǎ (如来塔), built in 1558, can be climbed for an extra ¥10. To get here, take the bus to Prime Minister Chen’s Castle but tell the driver you want to get off at Hǎihuì. To continue to the castle or Guōyù, flag a minibus from the main road (¥3).
