Jinji Temple Overview
The temple was fist built in Jiaqing 15, Qing Dynasty (1810), and rebuilt in Guangxu 33 (1907), so it owns more than 100 years history. The ancient building group includes Kwan-yin Pavilion, Maitreya Temple, Jade Emperor Palace, Sanguan Temple, Dragon Spirit Hole etc. Jinji Temple got its name because of its precipitous location (in Chinese, jinji means Golden Cock, which means precipitous location). The Kwan-yin and the offering desk in Kwan-yin Pavilion are all carved by stone. Maitreya Temple is just above the Kwan-yin Temple. Above the Maitreya Temple, there is a three-character inscription, Touching Star Platform. The style of writing is vigorous and powerful. The other temples are all stone-structured buildings including Sanqing Temple, Baozang Temple and Dimu Temple.
The Jade Emperor is built during Guangxu, Qing Dynasty, which is located at the south point of Jinji Mountain. Actually, the temple is built on a 50-square-meters platform above a huge cliff. Inside the temple there is a statue of Jade Emperor. Above the Jade Emperor there is a Sanqing Temple, which at the top of Jinji Mountain. The temple roof is cloud-kissing and mysterious. People who come here for burning incense and offering up a sacrifice all feel horrible and afraid. The coward dare not go to the temple. However, because of the high position, you can view the scenery under your feet. Feeling the smooth wind, you will have a sense of well-being and delightfulness.
