Tanzhe Temple

The Pool and Cudrania Temple or Tanzhe Si, is situated 45 kilometres west of the city. For Centuries, there has been a saying: "First there was the Pool and Cudrania Temple, then came Beijing." It dates back 1,600 years to the Jin Dynasty, when it was known as the Temple of Auspicious Fortune. In the Tang Dynasty, it was expanded and renamed the Dragon Spring Temple. It has been popularly known as the Pool and Cudrania Temple because of the Dragon Pool and cudrania trees on the hill behind the temple. The buildings were mostly rebuilt in the Ming and Qing dynasties. The Pool and Cudrania Temple, or Tanzhe Si, is situated 45 kilometres west of the city.
