Impressive ancient craftmanship and architecture Temple worth visiting. The 16m tall standing Guanyin clay figure is magnificent and unbelievablely still being preserved. The woodern Pavillion housing the Standing Guanyin with traditional architecture and interlocking woodern design is exhilarating. Ancient wall paintings and calligraphy are still preserved. A huge area with front, middle and back courts and left and right courts with smaller buildings housing other buddhas. Took us almost two hours to visit each court. A majestic herritage that had been preserved. It is amazing that the Temple had escaped the defacing or defiguring of buddha figures during the Cultural Revolution of the 1970s. Certainly a worth visiting itinerary.

The Avalokitesvasa pavillion (984 ce) is said to be the oldest wood pavilion in China. There is an impressively tall wooden buddha inside. The main pavilion is surrounded by other lower structures sh sheltering other buddhas or religious artifacts.

Dule Si, or Temple of Solitary Joy was first built in Tang Dynasty, and rebuilt in eary Liao Dynasty (984 AD). The only two buildings still standing till now, the Entrance Hall and Guanyin Pavillion, both have great importance in the Chinese history of architecture. If you are familiar with Dunhuang frescoes, you'll find how precious these buildings are. Such type of ancient architecture can only be seen in very few places including Dele Si, or in the frescoes. The he Guanyin Pavillion is now the oldest wooden multi-storey structure, housing the largest clay buddha figure. The building are exhilarating to traditional architecture lovers. We can see clearly how the building was structured based on complicated and firm wooden parts. After more than 2 dozens of recorded earthquakes, but she still stands firmly. We went from Beijing East Station by train, a little more than an hour on road.
