The palace in the remote mountain - Bao'en Temple
The palace in the remote mountain - Bao'en Temple   
 
Situated at the foot of the Beishan Mountain in Pingwu County, Bao'en Temple is one of the best-preserved ancient compounds of Ming Dynasty and listed in the Key Cultural Relic under State-level Protection. The layout in the temple resembled that of the Forbidden City in Beijing; hence it is also called “the palace in the remote mountain”. It stands in the west and escalates from east to west. The front gate, Golden-water Bridge, Tianwang Temple, Main Shrine Hall, Pantheon Tower are arranged on an axis and the Scripture Tower, Suanni, Dabei Hall, Yanhua Hall, Yubei Pavilion, Long Corridor and Monks' Rooms flank by the two sides. The temple is also famous for its delicate sculptures, elegant Buddha statues and vivid murals. There is an 8-meter-high Kwan-yin with one thousand hands in the temple. Its main body was engraved with a huge tree trunk, and its 1,004 hands are varied in postures. Apart from this, the Zhuanlunjingcang in the Yanhua Temple is exquisite beyond comparison. The architecture of the Bao'en Temple is featured by the cobweb-proof and earthquake-proof technologies and is eulogized by some experts both home and abroad as the “rare Architecture Heritage of the early Ming Dynasty” and “ingenious anti-earthquake compound.”
