Arhat Temple (Luohan Temple)
"Luohan" is the Chinese rendering of the Sanskrit "arhat" which is a Buddhist term referring to people who attained enlightenment, while he postponed his entry to nirvana to assist others.
Built about 1000 years ago, the temple has a long entranceway flanked by rock carvings, a hall of painted terracotta arhat sculptures and a hall containing a large gold Buddha figure. Behind the Buddha altar is an Indian-style mural depicting Prince Siddhartha in the process of his secular life to ultimate nirvana.
