A copy of the former Gurza Temple on Xīnjiāng's western border, this rarely visited complex dates back to 1764, built to commemorate the Qianlong emperor's annexation of the region around Tiān Shān. Only the three-storey main hall remains, which contains 200-year-old murals (being restored at the time of research) and a large, dust-covered statue of Green Tara. Entrance includes admission to the Pǔlè Temple and Hammer Rock (磬锤峰; Qìngchuí Fēng).
