Jinsi Temple, Taiyuan
(4/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
Travel back to the 1st century CE at Jinsi Temple, one of Shaxi's famous temple complexes. The compound features many buildings, statues, sculptures, bridges, and terraces built between the Wei Dynasty and the Song Dynasty. Don't miss the 2nd-century Hall of the Holy Mother, one of the temple's most prominent structures. As you cross a small bridge and come closer to the building, notice carved wooden dragons that adorn the hall's eight supporting pillars. Continue to walk throughout the complex and visit the temple garden where you will find a 3000-year-old cypress tree. Arrange to visit Jinsi Temple and other attractions in Taiyuan using our Taiyuan holiday planner.
