It is situated at the foot of Mount Feishilin in Jiangbei District of Ningbo City, thirteen kilometers away from the downtown.

Baoguo Temple Features

Baoguo Temple has a long history. As historical records go, in the Guangwu reign of the East Han Dynasty (25-220), Zhang Qifang, head of the secretariat, son of  Dashing General Zhang Yi, retired here after quitting officialdom. He transformed his hut into a temple and named it Linshan Temple, also known as "Dashing General Temple". It was later ruined, then rebuilt, destroyed again in the Huichang Reign of the Tang Dynasty when Buddhism was denounced as heretic. In 880 of the Tang Dynasty, Monk Kegong of Guoning Temple in Mingzhouguo (the present Ningbo) was sent to Chang'an, to entreat Tang Xizong, the then Emperor of the Tang Dynasty, to have Linshan Temple restored. While in Chang'an, he lectured o­n Buddhist Scriptures in the Hongfu Temple, thus greatly boosting Buddhism. Tremendously pleased, the emperor thought the restoration of Baoguo Temple was a great help in strengthening China, and thus a great tribute to it. Therefore, the emperor blessed him with a stele o­n which were written two large Chinese characters "Bao Guo" (Protecting the Country).
