Yanqing Taoist Temple is located in the central area of Kaifeng, northeast part of Baogong Lake. It used to be one of the larger Taoist Temples in Kaifeng. It was originally built in the fifth year of Taizong, in the Yuan Dynasty, and originally called Chongyang Taoist Temple to commemorate the Quanzhen Taoist sect founder Chongyang Perfected Being Wang Zhe, who proselytized and "ascended" from this place. Yuhuang Hall--the primary structure in the temple--has three levels. It's a brick structure built to resemble one made of wood. The hall roof utilizes a Mongolian yurt type of architectural design, intricately conceived with outstanding style. In the octagonal pavilion at the upper level, an idol of the Jade Emperor is worshiped.
