Wanshou Gong


in Taiyuan

This street is worth a wander to look at the grey brick historic church at No 5 and the nearby dilapidated remains of the Wanshou Temple (万寿宫, Wànshòu Gōng), fronted by a still extant, albeit crumbling and huge spirit wall (影壁, yǐngbì). It's a picture of neglect, but it's still there (just). The road runs west–east from Wuyi Lu (五一路) past a junction with Huangmiao Dongxiang (皇庙东巷) and then south to Shangguan Xiang (上官巷).
