What To Expect

Travelers looking to learn more about Buddhist culture won't want to miss this trip to visit the South Putuo Temple in Xiamen. Your tour begins by meeting your guide at the Buddhist College of Minnan. From here, you head to South Putuo Temple itself. While it is a famous tourist destination, there is so much about it that can be learned, especially on the aspects of Buddhism. You'll visit its numerous halls and learn about each location. In the Hall of Deva Kings, you'll see statues of fierce Heavenly Kings, with Buddha at the center. Then you'll see the Main Shrine Hall where most of the prayers are done, before seeing the Great Mercy Hall, dedicated to Guanyin Bodhisattva, the Goddess of Mercy. In the Depository of Buddhist texts, you'll see thousands of Buddhist scriptures, Buddha images, ivory sculptures, and more. Among other locations within the temple you'll visit are the Monastery of Omnipresent light, the Zhuanfeng Pagoda, and the Xixin Pool. Throughout the experience, your tour guide will tell you about the temple's areas and their individual significance to Buddhist study, and their function in the community that resides in the temple. You'll end your tour with greater knowledge of the local religious culture and better understanding of life in a Buddhist temple.
