This temple is dedicated to Bixia, the goddess of Tài Shān . The paintings here, Jīmíngyì's largest collection of Ming murals, depict the life of the goddess. They were whitewashed – some say for protection – during the Cultural Revolution. A professor from Qīnghuá University helped to uncover them; you can still see streaks of white in places.
