About Jiming Temple

Jiming Temple, also known as Old Jiming Temple, faces Xuanwu Lake to the north. Construction began during the Western Jin dynasty. It is one of Nanjing's most ancient and active Buddhist temples. During the Qingming Festival, you can admire a sea of cherry blossoms along the road in front of the temple. Climbing up the Medicine Buddha Pagoda in summer, you can look down over the lotus blossoming on the lake. The history of the Jiming Temple can be traced back to the Qixuan Temple of Eastern Wu, situated on land belong to the Wu Kingdom. In 300 A.D., construction of the main hall began on a plot next to the mountains. Daxiong Hall, otherwise known as Pilu Hall, is Jiming Temple's main hall. Right in the middle of the hall is the Pilu Buddha (Dharmakaya), one of the three embodiments of Buddha, flanked by the great bodhisattvas Manjusri and Samantabhadra. On the eastern and western sides of the hall are the 24 devas.
