Morality, Taoxiang Temple, is currently the only small-scale Taoist temple preserved in Zhangye City. It was built in the eleventh year of Emperor Qianlong of the Qing Dynasty, more than 300 years ago. Taoxiang Temple, formerly known as Laojun Temple, was named after Lao Zi, founder of Taoism School. Since the end of Qing Dynasty, it has been exclusively used by the ten-party wandering feathers to inhabit and stay in alchemy. Therefore, it is commonly known as Taoxiang Temple. The monarch’s palace has been destroyed, and the yard of the temple of the goddess of the goddess of joy in the temple of the temple of luban is destroyed and nothing exists. And erect the monument as a record. What I saw before my eyes has taken shape, only slightly crowded. The existing ancient cypresses are more than three hundred years old, with dead trees in spring, lush, with birds singing above them, and trees and shadows whirling. Unfortunately, the pilgrims are sparse and the view is cold and deserted.
In a shabby alley, the price is average.
A very nice place, solemn, sacred, majestic...
"Tao is the essence of heavenly gods, and virtue is the root of wealth on earth"! Morality, located in the hutong opposite the Dongdajie Police Station in Zhangye City, was built in the early Qing Dynasty and is the only Taoism preserved in Zhangye. Different from the Quanzhen School of Jade Palace in Hangzhou, the morality is upright, and the ancestor is Zhang Daoling. The entire temple has a reasonable layout, small and exquisite, with eight main halls of Laojun Hall, Zushi Hall, Jade Emperor Hall, Sanguan Hall, Sanxiao Hall, Guanyin Hall, God of Wealth Hall, and Yanwang Hall arranged separately. There is a 200-year-old arborvitae in the temple, which is included in the list of ancient and famous trees in Gansu Province and is unique to Taoxiang Temple. The dwellings in Taoist Hutong are similar to the Ming Dynasty granary in Zhangyedong Dacang, and should belong to the scope of the granary.
