Located on Baiyun Mountain, the holy place of Taoism along the Huangtu Plateau, 5 kilometers away from Jia county, Shaanxi province, it was constructed in the 33rd year of Wanli during the Ming Dynasty. Standing at 12 meters, it has two floors and has many archways with its main archway containing 26 stone beasts.
