This Ming-dynasty temple was founded in 1483, and more recently cracked during the Sìchuān earthquake of 2008. The main hall is a grand post and beam structure with intricate wooden lattice door panels: look for traditional symbols such as bats, dragons, peonies, cranes and swastikas. On the ceiling bright original paintings of the 64 hexagrams (varying combinations of the eight trigrams used in the I Ching) draw the eye upwards.
