Shixia community temple Shenzhen


This little ensemble of temples and monuments is located in the unlikeliest of places, behind KKONE shopping mall.  I am unsure if they are newly built to appear older, or if in fact the age is genuine (quite possible since Shixia is one of the older urban villages) either way the more traditional style of the temples along with the modern sleek architecture of the mall provides an interesting juxtaposition.  This is a popular spot for photographers with the mixture of old and new, the nice angles and views, and the abundance of people around.  If you come in the evening this is a hive of activity, with kids’ rollerblading or biking, aunties square dancing, or people just lazing around on a hot evening.  Definitely add this place to your list especially if you plan to visit the mall.
