What people are saying:

Zhenguo Temple is located in the south of Gaoyou City, on the island between Gaoyou Lake and the canal. It faces Yuchengyi across the river. Although it is very close in a straight line, it can only be reached by taxi because it is not connected by a bridge. The scenic area is free to visit and you can watch the canal up close. You can call a taxi when you leave, you can go back to the city directly, or you can get off near the Gaoyou Second Bridge and continue to the north to visit the Xidi Ming and Qing Canal Scenic Belt and get a glimpse of the scenery of Gaoyou Lake.

Additional Information

Introduction

Zhenguo Temple, located on the island on the Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal, is where the Tang Emperor Xizong's brother performed Zen meditation after he saw through the material world. After the master in the temple died, leaving Buddhist relics, the Emperor Xizong funded to reconstruct the temple and granted it the name "Zhenguo Zen Temple." He also built a white pagoda to enshrine the master's relics. Generations later, the original temple no longer exists except for the pagoda, which is an important antique treasure. The ancient towering pagoda stands on the island and looks even more beautiful in the sunset.
