Daming Monastery (Daming Si)

Yangzhou, China

You can't visit the Jiangsu Province in China and not visit the Daming Monastery (Daming Si or Daming Temple). The temple complex is a combination of attractions that reflect the history, religion, and architecture of the people. The Maitreya or Laughing Buddha welcomes visitors, irrespective of whether you are a devotee or tourists. In the Mahavira Hall you will find the main statue of Sakyamuni Buddha. This temple is a regular place of worship for farmers who believe that it brings good harvests and prosperity. There is a Scriptures Repository where ancient Buddhist religious texts are preserved. The landscaped gardens and architecture are a photographer's delight.
