China: Nanshan Buddhism Cultural Park

Nanshan Temple and Guanyin Statue.

Nanshan Buddhism Cultural Park in Sanya, China is a wonderful place to learn about Buddhism and its history, culture and art. The park covers an area of 50 square kilometers and has three main attractions: the Nanshan Temple, the Guanyin Statue and the Buddhist Cultural Zone. The Nanshan Temple is a replica of a Tang dynasty temple that commemorates two thousand years of Buddhism in China. The most impressive sight is the 108-meter-tall Guanyin statue that stands on a man-made island in the sea. It is the fourth tallest statue in the world.

The park also has other sites to explore, such as the China Buddhism Culture Institute, which offers courses and lectures on Buddhism; the Guanyin Park, which has various sculptures and plants related to Guanyin; and the Felicity and Longevity Culture Park, which showcases the Buddhist concepts of happiness and longevity. The park also has restaurants, hotels, shops and entertainment facilities for visitors.

Nanshan Buddhism Cultural Park

The Nanshan Buddhism Cultural Park is a must-see for anyone who is interested in Buddhism or who wants to experience a different side of China. It is not only a tourist attraction, but also a spiritual sanctuary where you can find peace and harmony. I highly recommend visiting this park if you ever have the chance. You won’t regret it!
