Six Banyan Tree Temple (Chinese:六榕寺) is an ancient Buddhist temple in Guangzhou, with a history of more than 1400 years. The temple got its current name from a great poet called Su Dongpo because of the six banyan trees he saw there. The vitality of the trees put him in a good mood and cheered him up. When the abbot of the monastery invited him to suggest a name, Su Dongpo wrote down its present name.
