Today, I came to Yangshan Qiyin Temple (30 minutes drive away) the ancient temple architecture is very simple, very special. There are two thousand-year-old ginkgo trees in the temple, said that male trees can also be fruit, I don't know if it is true.
The Qiyin Temple of Yangshan rose in the Tang Dynasty, prospered in the Song and Yuan Dynasties, and extended in the Ming and Qing Dynasties. It was almost destroyed by the torch during the Daoguang period in the late Qing Dynasty. In its heyday, Yangshan Qiyin Zen Temple had 28 halls, halls, towers, and pavilions, with more than a thousand monks, and had an important position and great influence at home and abroad. Famous literati Huang Tingjian, Fan Chengda, Xin Qiji, Zhu Xi, etc. in Song Dynasty have all visited. The temple covers an area of 400 acres.
Really to the home of family practice, in the quiet, no commercial noisy, away from Wentang Town half a small mountain road, worth to cleanse the noisy mind. Not recommended by locals generally do not know this place.
The ancient temples in the mountains, surrounded by mountains, like the lotus throne, are very elegant, the courtyard two ancient ginkgo trees stand tall. The temple is very quiet, there are many believers to attend the seven. If you go from Wentang Town, chartered a car costs 150 (the driver will pick up and wait for the tour).
