Bright Filial Piety Temple   

One of the earliest and largest Buddhist temples in Guangzhou possibly dates to the 4th century built by an Indian monk. The place has particular significance for Buddhists because Hui Neng of the Zen Buddhist sect was a novice monk here in the 7th century. The original buildings were destroyed in the fire in the mid-17th century. The main hall is a deep and impressive construction equipped with golden figures.
