With a history dating back more than 1,300 years, the Liuzu Temple was first built in the Tang Dynasty. It was most recently completely rebuilt during the 14th year of Qing Emperor Jiaqing. The design of the temple runs along a central axis with a main entrance, front hall, apse, left- and right-wing rooms and side alleys. The temple is encircled on all four sides by mountains. In the nearby mountains, there are many places and peaks whose names are related to the famous six ancestors that lend their names to the temple. Since its establishment in the Tang Dynasty, Liuzu Temple has attracted many devotees and pilgrims. On holidays, tourists flood the temple to pay homage. There is a constant flow of fragrant incense wafting up into the sky.
