Jiming Temple

Last updated by honey at 2013-11-3

Jiming Temple was initially built on the Jiming Hill by Emper Liang Wu Di in AD527. Its former name was Tongtai temple. The temple is one of the famous ancient temples in Nanjing and the only one monastery in the southeast coastal area. It is said that Emperor Liang Wu Di used to live here like real monks for four times with a name of Emperor Bodhisattva. This shows us that the temple is an ideal place to recuperate both our body and soul.

 There is a well, which related to an old legend: it is said that, the last emperor of Chen Dynasty Chen Hou Zhu lived in an extravagant life and paid little attention to the national affairs. Then the troop of Sui broke through and occupied the capital of Chen. Chen Hou Zhu and his two concubines were caught from a well, which was named by posterity as Humiliating Well or YanzhiWell. Unfortunately, the temple was ruined in successive dynasties later, and even to the edge of changing its name. After frequent reconstructions and perfections, the Jiming Temple became a famous scenic spot of the millennium. The Jiming Temple is the syntheses of hill, water, forest and temple. Its grand and majestic temples will make you excited; its beautiful and peaceful atmosphere will lead you to  a dreamlike fairyland.
