Hanging Monastery Introduction

Situated at the foot of Hengshan Mountain and perched precariously o­n a near-vertical cliff surface of the Golden Dragon Gorge, Hanging Temple (or the Temple in Midair) has been ranked as the first wonder of Hengshan Mountain. The temple was first built in the Northern Wei Dynasty (about 471-523) over 1,400 years ago, and later renovated in the Tang, Jin, Ming and Qing Dynasties. What can be seen now are the remains of the Ming and Qing Dynasties. Facing east, it looks like a unique and exquisite jade carving hung o­n a huge screen.

Hanging Monastery Features

The temple features 40 pavilions and halls. Amazingly built o­n pillars that were thrust into natural or man-made holes in the rocks behind, it is approached over a bridge and up a stone staircase that has been chiseled from the rocks’ surface. Its 6 main halls are intricately and ingeniously linked by winding corridors, bridges, and boardwalks, where you may have a secure and insecure glimpse of the view below, seized with a sense of danger that you can’t have elsewhere.
The temple boasts a good collection of 80 statues, including bronze, iron, clay and stone o­nes. The most remarkable should be the statues of Sakyamuni, Weituo, and Fairy in Three Saints’ Hall, which are physically chubby and true-to-life. What seems most special is the Three Religions’ Hall, where the statues of Sakyamuni, Confucius and Lao-tzu (Taoism’s founder) sit side by side interestingly, affording food for thought.
