Luojia Temple

By Yang Feiyue | China Daily | Updated: 2023-04-10

Located on Gongyu Island off the coast of Shishi, Fujian province, Luojia Temple was built in the 1990s in an architectural style typically seen in southern areas of the province. The roof is meticulously crafted and the stone pillars are decorated with lotus flowers. The rugged but delicate rockery is another attraction for visitors, with the 12 animals of the zodiac presented in various vivid and lifelike forms.

The temple is surrounded by sea, and during high tide, the reefs lie below the water line — making it appear as though the temple is floating on the ocean. The only means of access is via a bridge.

From the temple grounds, there is a 360-degree view of the horizon. On foggy days, the temple resembles a fairyland, which attracts photographers and adds to the venue's mystique.
