Brief Introduction to the Attraction:
Being the largest temple of Taoism in Ningxia province, the Yuhuang Pavilion is a magnificent architectural complex of ancient times with high base covered by bricks and sharp roof. It was first built in the first year of Emperor Guangxu’s reign (1875) of Qing dynasty, covering an area of 4200 square meters. Standing north and facing south, it is 105m long from north to south and 40m wide from east to west. Arranged in 4 levels, it becomes higher and higher from south to north and the highest architecture, by the name of “Sanmu Hall”, is about 26m above the ground. The whole complex, with unique contour and magnificent scale and strong flavor, consists of Chenghuang Hall, Guanyin Hall, Niangniang Hall, Sanqing Hall, Sanmu Hall, Yuhuang Hall, Dongbin Hall, Wenchang Pavilion, Guandi Pavilion, Wuliang Hall and so on, which is really a perfect combination.
Standing high in Yuhuang Pavilion, as far as you eyes can reach, there are many beautiful scenes, such as the Yellow River running east, towering Helan Mountain, classic and elegant city with high buildings and green trees, from which people can sense a mysterious, quiet and secluded sense to the old architecture and have an illusion that they were in a fairy place. To make full use of this unique tour resource, in recent years, Yuhuang Pavilion Park with beautiful sceneries, such as man-made lakes, winding corridors, fountains, sculptures, rockeries and a zoo, has been built around the Yuhuang Pavilion, which adds more grand sight.
