Fayu Temple Introduction

This is the second largest temple o­n the island (Puji Temple is the largest). This temple is famous for its ancient architecture, delicate wood carvings and inscribed calligraphy by ancient emperors. It is located o­n the left top of the Baihua hill, close to 1000-pace Beach. You can go there with the cableway or walk up the hill.Its history reportedly goes back to 1580, during the Ming Dynasty. As a monk, Da Chi, prayed to Guanyin at the Cave of Tidal Sound, he envisioned that a large bamboo had washed ashore o­n the 1000-pace Beach. Soon afterward, he built a hut o­n the beach and named it the 'Sea Tide Nunnery' (Haichao Nunnery).

Fayu Temple Features

Many faithful adherents contributed to expanding the modest temple through the years. In 1699, Emperor Kangxi of the Qing-dynasty decreed that the deserted imperial palace in what is now Nanjing had to be moved to Putuoshan to enshrine Guanyin. The main hall was added and Emperor Kangxi bestowed a horizontal tablet inscribed with four characters of "Tian Hua Fa Yu",  which has been interpreted to mean that the Buddhist doctrines are like rain and flowers from heaven. Thence, the Fayu Temple got its name.
