The suspended monastery : Xuankongsi

Oct 2009

This wooden temple was built about 1500 years ago into a cliff, 75 m above the ground. The reason for it was to keep it protected from a river. This temple is a bit special since there, 3 religions are worshipped together : Taoism, Confucianism and Bouddhism.
