Jintai Temple was called Jintai House. In the end of the Southern Song Dynasty, the Song army was defeated by the Yuan army. The prime minister Lu Xiufu took the young Xiangxing Emperor to jump into the sea and died for their contry. The exiled ministers Gong Xingqing, Deng Guangjian and others went to Huangyang Mountain, living in seclusion and named it "Jintai House". Therefore, it can also be said that Jintai Temple is a symbol of the desperate history of Southern Song Dynasty. Until the Qianlong period of the Qing Dynasty, the Jintai Temple was refurbished and expanded. Because of its deep forests with Zen atmosphere, increasing number of people visit here. Now it has become one of the famous temples worshiped by people in Zhuhai.
