The location of the center of Kunming is not far from the landmarks such as Henglong Square and Kunming Museum. The quaint and quaint scenery is still very characteristic. There is also a white tower next to the intersection. It is also a local representative building.
Zhenqing Temple was built in the Yuan Dynasty and was originally named "Zhenwu Temple". Its site is the core location of the eastern capital of Nanzhao-Dali local government during the Tang and Song Dynasties. Reconstructed in the sixth year of Xuande of the Ming Dynasty (AD 1431) and renamed "Zhenqing Guan". In the 9th year of Ming Zhengtong (AD 1444), the front hall of Zhenqingguan and the east and west corridors were added. Qing Qianlong in the 54th year (AD 1789) Rebuild. Zhenqingguan was the residence of the famous Taoist Changchun Liu Yuanran in the Ming Dynasty when he was relegated to Yunnan. Liu Yuanran "welcome the imperial envoys" here. Hong Xichu (approximately 1425 AD) Liu Yuanran was called back to Beijing. Please play the edict. The Longquan Taoyuan where he lived in Kunming was named Longquan Guan, and the Zhenwu Temple was named Zhenqing Guan. After Liu Yuanran returned to Beijing to serve, he Disciple Jiang Rihe became the abbot of Zhenqing Temple and presided over the reconstruction and expansion of Zhenqing Temple. Zhenqing Temple is composed of the Front Hall, Ziwei Hall, and Laojun Hall. The three halls all sit on the north facing south and are built on the same axis from south to north. On both sides of the central axis are the east-west corridors connecting the front hall and the Ziwei Hall. The Ziwei Hall is a three-room civil-wood structure with a single eaves on the top of the mountain. It covers an area of 320 square meters. The entire building retains the architectural style of the Ming Dynasty. The hall is dedicated to Emperor Ziwei. Behind the Ziwei Hall is the Laojun Hall (with symmetrical east and west wing rooms on both sides). Due to many repairs in history, it still retains the architectural style of the Yuan Dynasty. The hall is dedicated to the Laojun.
Zhenqing Temple has always maintained the traditional Taoist culture. There are more than one hundred Taoists and Taoist aunts in the Temple. Some traditional Taoist temples and activities are often held, and there are especially many people watching the ceremony. Very lively, and the construction and structure of the Taoist temple is very majestic and spectacular, antique, and indeed worth seeing!
