Meizhou Lingguang Temple was built in the second year of Xiantong in the Tang Dynasty (861 AD). It was originally called Shengshou Temple. It was renamed after the expansion in the eighteenth year of Hongwu (1385) of the Ming Dynasty. The layout of the building is roughly three rooms wide, entering seven rooms, with gates, halls, pavilions, etc., including the Daxiong Hall, King Kong Hall, Arhat Hall, Bell Tower, Scripture Hall, Guest Hall, and Zhai Hall, etc. The biggest feature is the "three unique spirits" . Although the incense is flourishing, the thick smoke of incense candles is emitted from the spiral-shaped wind bucket "Eight Algae Well" at the top of the palace, which makes the palace fresh all year round. This is a must. The ancient trees on the roof of the palace are towering, but the tile surface does not leave a leaf. There are two ancient cypresses standing upright in front of the temple, one glorious and one withered, one death in life, the living has lush branches and leaves, the dead is withered and immortal, the peculiar "tree of life and death", rare in the world, this is the three unique. The temple is surrounded by mountains, with a stream in front of it, and the fragrance of birds and flowers feels really comfortable.
