Temple of the Six Banyan Trees

Guangzhou, China
4.8 / 5
Built in 537, the temple complex acquired its present name 500 years later, when a poem of the same name appeared in his honor. Banyan tree grew nearby, which created a curious landscape. Current trees are smaller. On the territory there was a place for pavilions, arbors, a grotto and statues. The Pagoda of Flowers is part of the composition. It is one of the highest in the Celestial Empire, as it rises to 57 meters.
