Description

The temple is the only place that worships a turtle god. The origin of this temple can be traced to a turtle-shaped stone having Bagua-like lines, which is said to have performed miracles. The busy temple is said to be very effective for pilgrims and is always crowded during the weekend. Seasoned hikers can walk for a couple of hours on the mountain trail after visiting the temple. The Sunlong trail and Yingge Trail both provide a good view for several scenic spots, including Jianshan and Yuanfeng in the distance and Yinggeshi, the Hongde Temple and the Nonglin Temple.
