Built in the 1920s, the Bo Re Temple (Prajna Temple) is the biggest temple in the city of Changchun, covering an area of 10,000 square meters (1 hectare). The gate hall of the temple opens onto a compound flanked by bell and drum towers in a unique architectural style. Arrayed on the axial line are the Hall of Deva-kings, the Mahavira Hall and the Tripitaka Pavilion.

One prominent feature of this temple is that all its representations of Buddha, bodhisattvas and 18 arhats are cast in massive bronze statues. An exception is the likeness of Guanyin, made of porcelain. The statue of Sakyamuni inside the Mahavira Hall stands at more than three meters tall and the 18 arhats sitting beside him are one-meter-tall figures.

Admission:8 yuan (US$1.3) / person
