Putuo Temple

Updated: 2018-10-11

Sited at the base of Fenghuang (Phoenix) Mt of Dongkeng Village in Qianshan, Putuo (Potalaka) Temple reproduces the 1:1 ratio of the Four Sacred Mountains of Buddhism -- Mount Putuo in Zhejiang, Mount Jiuhua in Anhui, Mount Emei in Sichuan, and Mount Wutai in Shanxi – along the hillside of Fenghuang Mt range.



Styled ancient yellow-wall and black-tile-roof cornice architecture, Putuo Temple scenic spot houses delicately sculptured Buddha statues coated with 24k gold powder in the Main Shrine Hall and a 77-ton copper bell in the tower, suggesting the solemn divine atmosphere of Buddhism. Worshippers can burn incense to pay respect to the Buddha and offer prayers.

Covering an area of 400,000 sq m (40 hectare), the gardenlike spot encompasses archways, a pagoda forest, catering, shopping, pond, monks' domicile and other areas. A number of long-lived turtles in the pond delight visitors old and young.
