Chengxiang Pavilion has existed over 400 years with a large-scale construction cluster consisted of Heavenly King Palace, Hall of Sakyamuni, Pavilion of Avalokitesvara, Hall of Jialan and Yingci Master Commemoration Hall. The name of Chengxiang Pavilion originates in precious Chinese eaglewood which is used to sculpture of Buddhist statues and was written by Shamenghai.

Chengxiang Pavilion is one of the largest Buddhist nunneries temples providing a good chance to experience the typical Chinese Buddhist temple. The famous Avalokitesvara is enshrined in Chengxiang Pavilion. However, the original Avalokitesvara was destroyed and the temple was renovated in 1992. The present statue of Avalokitesvara made of agalloch eaglewood, was donated by disciples from Hong Kong.
