Wanfu Temple is located in Yinna Mountain, Meizhou,
Guangdong province, which is one of the major tourism spot
in Meizhou. The temple was built 1000 years ago. In recent
decades, these temples have been reconstructed for several
times, and were deviate from Buddhist tradition in terms of
architectural form, spatial framework and style. This
renewal project aims to reconstruct the relationship of
temples and the surrounding environment- create Wanfu
Temple Axis and stone steps which follows the terrain of
Yinna mountain. Based on the sophisticated site and existing
temple buildings, the design forms three courtyards, which
is against the general approach of traditional temple zone
with only one axis. Meanwhile, with the hakka scenic spot
features and themes, the place is endowed with compound
function of different themes, which makes perfect
combination of natural environment and historical culture.
Through this religious tourism project, the landscape
humanistic revival will effectively solve the Meizhou and
Guangdong regional growth pole of the tourism economic
development in the future, provide opportunities for
neighbor cities to improve, and serve as develop engine of
tourism development in major cities along the coast.
