“Ancient Building Techniques and Interesting History”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

This Ming Dynasty Temple is right in the middle of Shaxi facing the Square. This is a free open to the public Temple. They will require you to provide information upon entering, just nationality or where you come from. It hold many gods including Tantric Buddhas and Bai Gods. Interestingly the Bai people have a wide variety of plant knowledge, for medicinal and religious incense, and there was an exhibition with illustrations on the local plants and what they were used for which I found fascinating. And they have information on the building construction.
