This temple is indeed still open. It still costs 10yuan to enter. There are ticket offices to the left and right of the entrance. Once you enter you can buy incense on your left for 5yuan if you are so inclined. The shop with blessed items is on the right of the entrance (you can enter the shop from the outside as well).

There is a vegetarian cafeteria to the left of the entrance (outside) there is a table on the left where you can buy a pot of rice and veg or a cold noodle salad (10yuan each) and there is soup for 2yuan.
stalls with vegetarian goods can be found on the right.

If you want to visit a free temple there is one behind this one close to the entrance of the park.

Maybe it’s just as wonderful during the rest of the year too but I can truly recommend it when snow-covered: it was majestic! Definitely worth trying to explore as much as you can because it goes on a lot further than it originally appears.

The Buddhist (sizable) temple complex is worth taking the time to see while in Harbin. It is an active and busy site with many people taking the time for prayer and reflection. The buildings are beautiful and it appears as though the grounds would lovely when it's green (I was there in the winter).

The Temple of Bliss is really a fairly large complex of temples and living quarters. I enjoyed wandering the complex and seeing the beautiful details of each structure. There were many faithful Buddhist praying and incense was burning. A worthwhile stop in Harbin.

Jile Temple was one of my favorite stops in Harbin. I visited during National Holiday, so it was a little busy. I’ve visited a lot of temples in China before, but this one did not disappoint. It was a lot bigger than I was expecting! It was very chill and relaxed even though there was a lot of people inside. When I visited there was some type of ceremony or mass prayer going on.

Visited this temple that is one of the famous Buddhist temples in northeastern China. The temple dates back to early 1900's and has several halls and a tall Pagoda tower.

In hindsight I would have taken this off our itinerary - if you have never visited a Chinese Buddhist temple before, feel free to visit. If you have then this one is smaller than most we have visited in other cities. So many other things in the city to see and it seemed it took us a while to just get there.

This is a must go during your visit to Harbin! Because it’s not just about ice and snow!

The area is tranquil and the property is vast! Many interesting temples and deities to visit and see.

Not too sure if it happens to be a “mass prayer” day but the sound of the chanting and prayers on a windy cloudy day seemed to have that additional spark in the air.

We really enjoyed this. Our driver suggested to stop here. I am so glad we did. It was such a cold day, we walked around and saw so many sights with little pogodas, budhas and little shops. A very interesting hours walk around inside. I actually took some great photos and now have 2 permently on my wall. It also started snowing whilst we where there. very special. Loved it :)

When you come to Harbin, you're NOT expecting to really see temples because that title and task belongs to an ancient capital like Bei Jing and Xi An. However, this temple is similar to that of Guo Zi Jian of Beijing! Visited on 12 Sep 2016 right after celebrating my birthday with friends, I saw the many palaces and gates of the heavenly. The ferris wheel amusement park is located right next to the temple so you can expect to have a double tour trip there. Not a lot of foreigners go there though.
