1-Day Tour to Longquan Temple and Fenghuangling Forest Park, March 25

fenghuangling Longquan Temple

Not long ago, the Longquan (Dragon Spring) Temple was a run-down temple complex on the outskirts of Beijing’s Haidian District dating from the Liao Dynasty (907–1125). However, in just a decade, it has undergone a major “makeover” to become China’s “hottest” temple and the new Beijing-based center for the dissemination of Buddhism. Many legendary claims about it are circulating in society at large: that it possesses the best academically qualified monks and the strongest scientific research team of any temple in China, and that it created the first-ever animated cartoon using dough figurines.
