Kaifu Temple

Kaifu Temple, located out of the north door of Changsha, has a history of more than 1000 years. It is one of the Chinese key Buddhist monasteries. With surrounding mountains and clear running water, it was not quite densely populated here in the past.

Kaifu Temple covers more than 48,000 square meters and its building area is more than 8000 square meters. A gate to a monastery, which is a four-pillar and three-layer memorial arch type, and a red wall, 3 meters high, embrace the temple around.

At the gate to a monastery, a horizontal plaque with the words “Ancient Kaifu Temple ”, were written by Chen Haipeng, a garrison commander of Fushan Town in the years called “Guangxu” of Qing Dynasty.
