Tàishān Temple

Taoist Temple in Jimingyi

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.
