Pool and Mulberry Tree Temple (Tanzhe Si), Beijing

(4.3/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
Among the earliest Buddhist shrines in China, Pool and Mulberry Tree Temple (Tanzhe Si) features halls, courtyards, and altars, arranged along the central axis and built during Ming and Qing dynasties. A large bronze pot in front of the main hall was used by monks for preparation of food. In the courtyard behind the hall grows a pair of gingko trees--the emperor tree and the empress tree. Legend has it that the emperor tree grew a new branch each time a new Qing ruler came to the throne. A tall pavilion with a brick roof carved with images of dragons and phoenixes, as well as a 1.46 m (4.79 ft) long green stone fish carved from a huge meteorite deserve your attention. Using our custom trip planner, Beijing attractions like Pool and Mulberry Tree Temple (Tanzhe Si) can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • 探春花开得很好,二乔玉兰刚刚长出花苞,寺里有很多古树,金镶玉竹子也很特别,就是好多兜售佛教用品的啊,这一点感觉不好  more »
  • 先有潭柘寺后有北京城,这句老话印证了潭柘寺的古老。潭柘寺位于北京的西郊门头沟区,香火旺盛,周边景点众多。景区门口还有一个宾馆,餐饮是全素食  more »
