Guiyuan Buddhist Temple is situated in the west end of Cuiwei Street
of Hanyang. It was first built by two monks in early Qing Dynasty. The
existing structure was rebuilt after destruction by wars, including
the Tower of Buddhist Sutra, the Main Hall and the Arhat Hall. The more
than 7,000 volumes of Buddhist scripture, the white jade Buddhist Statue
and the Buddhist scriptures presented by India, Sri Lanka, Burma, Thailand
and Japan in their own languages are especially worth visiting. The
statues of Weito (the temple guardian) carved of oak, the 500 disciples
of Buddha ( arhat ) with various looks and gestures and the 1, 000-hand
Guanyin are all precious cultural relics.
