2013-08-30 16:39:11




Hanging Temple in Hunyuan county which was built during the latter period of Northern Wei Dynasty with a history of more than 1,400 years, is the only existing temple of Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianism. The temple is located halfway up Mt. Cuiping and across from Mt. Hengshan with the cliffs below. There are 40 rooms in the temple. The scientifically designed and skillfully built Xuankong Temple is really "odd, suspended and wonderful".
