Nestled along the coast of Shishi City, Fujian Province, Luojia Temple stands as a distinctive coastal sanctuary for Buddhists in China. Linked to the shore solely by a stone bridge, it is hailed as a “Buddhist paradise by the sea.” When the tide rises, the temple seemingly floats on the sea, positioning boldly on the shorefront.

Known for its delicately crafted roof and stone pillars adorned with intricate lotus flower designs, the temple is a testament to the art of meticulous craftsmanship. Completed in 2001, the temple showcases a distinctive architectural style commonly found in the south of Fujian Province.
