My friend does not like this temple a lot. As per her, there are many other beautiful temples and monasteries in Bodh Gaya, then why should she love it. But I think despite the simplicity, it reflects Chinese culture and Chinese buddhism.

Avoid all these country-specific "temples". They have no historical or heritage importance. Instead they will eat up your precious time, that can be otherwise spent inside the Mahabodhi Temple.

China Buddhist temple is a nice place for meditation and seeking blessings of Buddha. Of course, the architecture is in Chinese style and many inscriptions on the wall are in Chinese only. 3 statues of Buddha are the hallmark of the Chinese temple. Temple remains...More
