What people are saying:

Wannian Temple is one of the oldest ancient temples in Emei Mountain. It was founded in Jin and was called Puxian Temple. It was renamed Baishui Temple in Tang and was called Baishui Puxian Temple in Song Dynasty. The Emperor of the Shenshu sect, Zhu Xi, wrote the title "Shengshou Wannian Temple" in the Ming Dynasty. Built in the Ming Wanli 28 (1600) of the Liangzhubian Hall (P5), is built by Emperor Wanli for his mother Zhushou. The hall is high 17.12 meters, with a semicircular hollow dome on the top, a square base on the bottom, shaped like a yurt, symbolizing the heavenly circle. On the four walls of the hall, the Wanli Buddha surrounds. In the center of the hall, there is a bronze-cast white elephant renza Puxian bodhisattva, weighing about 62 tons. In the "Ganyu Building" of the Wannian Temple, the three treasures of the Zhen Temple are enshrined: the Buddha's teeth, the Baye Sutra and the Wanli Gold seal, and the major Buddhist events and commemorative festivals are only exhibited.

    Best old Buddhist temple around, off the beaten track!
