About this place

Nanputou Temple locates at the foot of Wulao Peak, on the southern end of Xiamen Island. The temple was first built during Tang the Dynasty (618-907), and rebuilt during the Qing Dynasty( 1644-1911). The temple houses a huge collection of Buddhist cultural relics. It is one of the sacred places for Buddhism in Southern Fujian.

Behind the temple, there is a big word"buddha"  inscribed on the wall of a rock . The word is 4.66 metres in height and 3.33 metres in width. Further behind, that's the mountain called "Wulao PeaK" or "Five Old Gentlemen Peak". Look from far, the five peaks wreathed by clouds are just like five old men with white beard.
