“Lovely little temple”
Review of Qingshan Temple

Qingshan Temple
Reviewed December 24, 2013

This is a really nice little temple that is hidden among old apartment buildings. The moody interior is full of wonderful statues and imagery. It is certainly worth a short visit.

this temple has amazing culture behind it. It has three stories worth of memorizing historical architectural work, and each level of the temple is devoted to specific individuals. The first level is devoted to General Chin Shan Gong, the second level is devoted to his wife, and the third level is devoted to the Jade Emperor. During 20th to 22nd of October (Lunar Calendar), locals will celebrate he birth of Chin Shan King (青山王), the main deity figure of the temple. This is one of the most massive event held in Monga (Wanhua) annually by temple troupes - indeed worth a watch!

Just around the corner from the far more famous Longshan Temple, Qingshan gets fewer visitors which is exactly why you should make a slight detour to pay it a visit! Don't be put off by the less than salubrious buildings that surround it - Qingshan is an oasis of calm with some interesting examples of Chinese religious statuary. A personal favourite.

A delightful, bright little temple tucked away between some very crumbly old buildings. Local people passing along the street stop and bow and make a quick prayer. Not grand or formal like the larger temples. There are large dressed statues inside as well as some fascinating figures with incredibly long eyebrows. I've no idea who they are, but well worth a visit.
