Introduction to Yuantong Temple (昆明圆通寺)
The construction of Yuantong Temple was originally constructed in the Tang Dynasty, and it was first named Butuoluo Temple. In the year 1301 during the Yuan Dynasty, the emperor ordered the temple to be destroyed and rebuilt from scratch, and gave it its name, Yuantong Temple. The expansion program didn’t finish until 1319, lasting 18 years in total. There were also several expansion programs in the following Yuan and Qing Dynasties. In recent years, continuous restoration and expansion programs were launched in Yuantong Temple.
