  • Great and beautiful Chinese temple walk through all levels by a lot of steps onthe top level have a very large and beautiful Stone gate and nice sculptures on the walls. Top view can see whole temple touch a fresh air. Nice for relaxing moment with beautiful view.
  • Been to many temples and I must confess Wenwu was definitely able to impress me. One could spend a lot of time just roaming through this place. Go to the sky deck for a spectacular view. Beautiful temple and be sure to come for the sunset. So beautiful!
