Besides being the oldest temple in Guangzhou, Bright Filial Piety Temple holds an important place in Chinese Buddhist history. Dajian Huineng, one of the most important figures in Zen Buddhism, spent time as a novice monk at the temple during the seventh century and the Sixth Ancestor Hall was built in his memory.
The temple is popular with Chinese and foreigners alike, making the grounds an excellent place for people to listen to the soothing sounds of monks and nuns chanting in the background.
