And you will uncover the peaceful Wuyou Temple, located on the top of a small island, opposite the Giant Buddha Statue. Due to its unique location, it has very open river view and peaceful environment. You will cross a river bridge, follow the stone steps up again, which is covered by the shadow of the trees. Once getting to the top, the open river views appear in front of you.
