Dongshan Zijin Nunnery, also known as Jin'an temple, was built in Tang Dynasty with a history of more than 1400 years. Sixteen painted sculpture arhats with vivied gestures and different faces make Zijin Nunnery a place special in the country. Jingyin Tang, behind Arhat Tang, was developed into an exhibition hall of cultural relics.
Tingsong Tang is a good place to enjoy a cup of tea, at the window of which you can hear the sound of billows of pine trees. People say that if there were two and a half halls of arhats, Zijin Nunnery can possess one hall. Statues of Arhat groups with sophisticated craftwork are representatives of Suzhou sculptures and colorful paintings in Qing Dynasty.
