The tourists who visited the temple admire this unique architecture. The Temple pavilions are connected with wooden planks. The tracks are built directly on the rock, so they are very narrow. Only one person, in one direction, can go on the track. Any tourist who comes to this track, starts to worry holding his breath, moves slowly, slowly, as if the slightest false step and the temple collapses and he will fall through to bottom.
The Hanging Temple is small due to the limitations of its location. However, the number of images and statues, which are set in the halls of the temple, is not inferior to other churches in China. They are also made of bronze, iron, clay, and, of course, rock. However, due to the small scale of the church in general, the sculptures in its halls are also relatively small, but very proportional. They have unique facial expressions that are highly valued in art.
In addition to the original architectural execution, the church is still the only temple in China where there are three religions, recognized together in one and the same church. These three religions are Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianism.
Opening hours: 09:00-17:00
