At the foot of Mount Huanggai, occupying an area of 100,000 square meters, this temple was originally built during the Qin Dynasty (221-207 B.C.). The architectural style of its central hall is very similar to that of the Hall of Supreme Harmony in Beijing’s Forbidden City. The temple houses four large iron statues supposed to be guardians. They were cast in the Song Dynasty. The three hundred–odd cypress trees in the temple compound have lived more than a thousand years.
The grand Central Mountain Hall, with its scarlet walls and golden tiles, stands in the midst of many other palaces, chambers, pavilions, and corridors.
