PLEASE ASK PERMISSION BEFORE YOU RE POST MY PHOTOS ON TO YOUR BLOG. THERE ARE SOME BLOGGERS WHO DID NOT ASK MY PERMISSION AND REPOST MY PHOTOS WITHOUT THE COURTESY OF LINKING BACK TO MY BLOG. THIS IS LIKE STEALING. PEOPLE, I HAVE SPEND MUCH TIME TAKING PHOTOS AND DOING HOMEWORK ON MY TRAVELLING INFORMATION AND KINDLY SHARE THESE INFORMATION TO ANYONE INTERESTED IN THEM. IF NECESSARY I WILL POST SCREEN SHOT OF YOUR BLOG TO SHOW YOUR BAD MANNERS OF STEALING MY PHOTOS. THE MOST DISGUSTING THING THEY DID WAS TO SCREEN SHOT MY PHOTO AND CORP OFF MY BLOG TITLE AND REPOST IN THEIR BLOG. After lunch, we decided to visit Guangxiao Temple, so we took the metro and alighted at Ximenkou Station. Once we come out of the correct exit, we looked on the left and we can see Guangxiao Street, the temple is at the end of Guangxiao Road. Easily can view the temple from the street.
There are quite a few beggars at the temple, they wont disturb you if you dont pay attention to them.
Two huge gods guarding the entrance of the temple.
The temple is grandest and most influential temple in Guangzhou with a history of more than 1,700 years. It is the popular saying among the Cantonese that Guangxiao Temple predated the founding of the city of Guangzhou.
The temple was initially the residence of Prince Zhao Jiande, the third-generation offspring of the Nanyue Kingdom during the Western Han Dynasty (206 BC - 24 AD). You can read more information from source .
Along Guangxiao Road just outside the temple, lots of vendors and shops selling incense paper and joss sticks.
I was curious to see what the shop was selling with people queueing to buy stuff. It is actually a bakery shop selling some pastries.
Guangzhou Guangxiao Christian Church, one of Guangzhou’s largest churches, is located in the center of the downtown.The church was entirely funded and built by Chinese Christians.
