Listed as one of the largest Zen temples in northern China, this house of worship tilts the mind's proverbial “wow-meter” all the way into the red. It consists of two temples: Old and New. The Old was built in 1669 and features a dazzling display of Buddhist carvings. In 1940 the New was added and is best known for housing a gold-gilded Sykiamuni statue dating all the way back to the Ming dynasty. A vegetarian cafe is on site.
