Add To Plan

Enjoy the spiritual side of the beautiful Tong'an area by visiting two of its most cherished religious attractions: the district's only Confucian temple and its oldest Buddhist temple.

Depart from the pier for a leisurely drive north and inland to Tong'an, an administrative district known for its natural beauty, hot springs and agricultural bounty. While vastly pleasing to the eye, Tong'an is also known for nurturing the spirit through its many temples. Perhaps the most revered is the Tong'an Confucian Temple, which was initially constructed in the 10th century and later rebuilt in the 19th century.

Surrounded by a lovely granite and brick wall, the elegant temple is the only one of its kind in the district dedicated to the philosophical teachings of Confucius. Meandering through the serene setting, you'll appreciate the temple's graceful architecture, symbolic sculptures and manicured landscaping. At its heart lies the Museum of Tong'an, a treasure-trove of relics collected over the past two thousand years.

Continuing on, your historical and cultural enlightenment continues at the nearby Fan Tian Temple. Constructed at the southern foot of the Dalun Mountain during the Sui Dynasty more than 1,400 years ago, it is the oldest Buddhist temple in the entire Fujian Province. Its oldest remaining building is the Brahman Tower, a three-story stone edifice that lords over the temple grounds. After an enriching visit at the Fan Tian Temple, you'll drive back to the pier.

Please note: This tour includes over 90-minutes of moderate walking with some steps to negotiate. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests and those with mobility concerns are cautioned to carefully evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. Casual, weather appropriate clothing; sun cap; sunglasses; and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended.
