On a site of 5.7 Hectares, the Temple of Bliss is located at the end of Dongdazhi Street in Nangang District in Harbin. It is one of four famous Buddhist temples in the three provinces in northeastern China, the other three being Banruo Temple in Changchun, Cien Temple in Shenyang and Lengyan Temple in Yingkou.

It consists of the Mountain Gate, the Heavenly King Hall, the Hall of Mahavira, the Hall of Three Saints, Scriptures-storing Tower, Side Hall, Chanting Hall, Shifang Hall, Anyang Hall and the monks' cells. A seven-story pagoda dominates the temple. Measuring over 30 meters (98 feet) tall, it has eight upturned eaves and elegant Buddhist pictures on the walls in each level. From the bottom to the top, it worships the bronze statues of Sakyamuni Buddha, Amitabha, Medicine Guru Buddha, Bodhisattva Manjusri, Samantabhadra, Kwanyin and Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva.
On Buddhist festivals on every April 8, 18 and 28 in Chinese lunar calendar, exciting temple fairs are held in the temple. At present, the Temple of Bliss has been listed as an important cultural heritage site under provincial level protection and key temples in the country. It is not only a Buddhist holy land of northern China, but also a famous scenic site, well known at home and abroad.
