Temple sights in Zhōngwèi
- Sort by:
This eclectic, multipurpose temple has at various times catered to the needs of Buddhism, Confucianism and Taoism. It's still a hodgepodge of architectural styles, but the revitalised Buddhist deities have muscled out the original Taoists and Confucians.
The real oddity is the former bomb shelter, built beneath the temple during the Cultural Revolution and later converted into a Buddhist hell-haunted house. The eerie, dimly lit tunnels echo with the haunting screams of the damned. Try not to get too freaked out.
