This is the longest painted corridor on China at 750m. It had over 8000 painted pictures along the ceiling rafters. The art work has recently been restored and is extremely detailed. Very pretty and worth a walk along it!

The artwork in the corridor is just simply stunning. The detail is shocking. yes,it has been restored-but Wow. So much to look at. Does get crowded as the day go on. It also serves as protection from the rain or sun.
