Guanghua Temple is o­ne of four major Buddhist temples of Fujian, as well as o­ne of "top 10 tourist resorts". The Sanqing Hall of Xuanmiao Abbey is o­ne of the best preserved Taoist architectural complex built in Tang Dynasty. Furthermore, there are also a range of antique building relics as Southern Shaolin Temple, Guqiao Building of Song Dynasty, tomb of Cai Xiang, the relic of porcelain kiln and Puxi Town, the famous town for fighting against Japanese pirates in Ming Dynasty.
