Jietai Temple Introduction

Jietai Temple, the important protection unit of cultural relic of the national, has a long history with the beautiful scenery. It was built in 622 in the Tang Dynasty, and was known as the Wisdom Accumulation Temple. In the Liao Dynasty, a monk named Fajun had an altar built here for the ordination of novices into the Buddhist priesthood. It was renovated and renamed the Longevity Temple under the Ming. The temple is commonly known as Jietaisi, Ordination Terrace Temple or "the place for selecting Buddhas." Most of the present buildings were reconstructed in the Qing Dynasty.

Jietai Temple Features

The Mahavira Hall, the main hall in the Temple, originally contained ten carved sandalwood chairs made in the Ming Dynasty. Three of them were placed high above, for the a bbot and two elders, and another three to the left and four to the right, for the witnesses to the ordination ceremony. Outside the hall there are two steles, o­ne erected in the Jin Dynasty and the other in the Liao. In the northeast compound is the Ordination Altar made of white marble. It is a three-level altar over three metres high. The base is carved with figures of several hundred deities. Twenty-four of them are o­ne metre high . They wear helmets and armour and look like warriors. The rest are about o­ne-third their size. South of the altar is the Upali Hall, which contains the image of the Arhat Upali, o­ne of the disciples of the Buddha.
