The Six Banyan Trees
The Temple of Six Banyan Trees
(Liu rong si) is a pretty and exceptionally well
maintained temple situated in the heart of Guangzhou.
The Temple originally had a different name but
was renamed the 'banyan tree' temple by the dissident
poet Su Dongpo who visited the site in 1,100.
This is a very active working temple.
An interesting construction stands
in the temple grounds. The Hua Ta Pagoda is an
octagonal building, reaching up seventeen storeys.
The sculpture in the wooden eaves and the ceiling
here is exquisite and there are hundreds of small
posing Buddha's peering out at visitors as they
make the climb up the steep staircase.
