We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Guiyuan Buddhist Temple, Wuhan

The word “Guiyuan” orinates from a sutra, meaning to surpass the circumscription of existence and extinguishment, to return to purity and tranquility.

Covering an area of about 46,900 square meters, Guiyuan Buddhist Temple is in a garden style, it is made up of five courtyards: the eastern courtyard, the western courtyard, the southern courtyard, the northern courtyard, and the middle courtyard.

Guiyuan Temple is well known for its grand architecture, Buddhist scriptures, The statues of Weito (the temple guardian) carved of oak, especially the 500 Lohans in the southern courtyard. They were vivd and lively just like real people. They are all identical in size, and each is no more than 25 kilogram's in weight. What is most amazing is that one can never find two Lohans with the same appearance or expression. They are all totally different from each other. Counting Lohans in the courtyard forms an interesting custom in Wuhan. It is said that one can know the disasters and fortunes in the present year by counting the Lohans.
