The site map of the Jingshan Temple (徑山寺) Baycroft, Anne


Jingshan Temple was originally built during the Tianbao (天寶) period of the Tang dynasty (唐朝, 618-907). It was most popular during the Southern Song dynasty housing over 1700 monks. Following centuries of war and disrepair, little of the original temple remains today. In 2008, a massive reconstruction of the entire temple site was started. Most fixtures on the site today are relativity new. Map of Jingshan based on a landscape painting is posted near the entrance of the temple.
