Foshan is a prefecture-level city in central Guangdong province, People's Republic of China. The city has jurisdiction over an area of about 3,840 km² and a population of 5.4 million of which 1.1 million reside in the city proper (year 2000 figures).
Tourist Sights: Foshan has many sights, including Chinese temples and other examples of Chinese architecture. The old Zhu temple in Foshan houses the city's guardian, and stands in its original site since many hundred years ago. The temple has endured many wars and the Cultural Revolution, and is still standing. Much of its original architecture is still intact. The temple is now used to stage the traditional Canton opera at night.
Beside the Zhu temple, another example of traditional Chinese buildings is the Liang Yuan. It is one of the four famous Yuan, or private estate in Guangdong. It epitomized the building style of the Ming-Qing dynasties, with delicate craftsmanship into every inch of the building, and a compact yet elegantly designed garden. It is very well preserved, with most of its original artefact displayed in-house. Very near to the site of this Lian Yuan, there is a group of preserved buildings that dated back to the Qing dynasty. Although they are now private housing, permits can be obtained to visit some of these buildings from the Tourist Bureau. These buildings all display the very classic building style of that era, which is the abandonment of the large and ostensible garden and space in favour to small yet multi-stories houses that is practical to the land constraint.
Another place in Foshan is the old porcelain furnace in Shi Wan. That furnace was said to be in operation since the Tang dynasty, and the fire inside was always kept alight. It is still in operation, and is still producing some of the chinaware that made Foshan famous. Surrounding that site are many workshops of the local artists.
The countryside surrounding Foshan city retains much of its traditional southern China rural characteristics.
Ancestors' Temple, Renshou Pagoda, Folk Arts & Crafts Center, and Pottery & Ceramics Guild.
