Fuxi (Foo She) is a central character in Chinese cultural history. He is said to have invented writing, the catching of fish by nets, the trapping of animals, and the Ba Gua, the eight fundamental principles of reality. He comes from Tianshui, so this is one of the few, and the most important, shrines of Fuxi.
The temple is not expensive to get into, and you can take tours of it, but unfortunately, only in Chinese. You can bring or hire a translator if you like!
The temple itself is immaculate. It is a peaceful, green, and sacred place. It is a very important piece of Chinese history and culture, and you can feel the weight of it in the quiet. One unique piece to the temple is a tree that is over 1,000 years old - that brings the fully weight and significance of the place crashing down.
