It is a small shop diagonally across from the 480. It is typical Chongqing snack shop, primarily for takeout, because only 6 persons can be seated at the shop.
When the bus arrives at Luohan Temple, the Driver will introduce Luohan Temple for the passengers in Chongqing-style mandarin. There are 500 lifelike arhat painted sculptures in Arhat Hall, in different shapes. There is a repeat broadcast at the hall gate to teach you how to count the arhats.
