What people are saying:

Qixia Temple is located at the foothills of Huilong Mountain in Yiyang City, Hunan Province. It was built in the Taiyuan reign of Emperor Xiaowu of the Eastern Jin Dynasty (late 4th century AD). It was built by Indian monks inferior to Mituozun. It was originally named Baoquan Temple. According to legend, Emperor Jianwen of the Ming Dynasty was forced to leave due to court turmoil and shaved his hair here as a monk. When he was rebuilt, he used it as the emperor building, so it was renamed Qixia Temple. In the temple, there is a couplet inscribed on a stele of history: "An ancient temple of the Jin Dynasty preserves the vicissitudes of the world, and a hidden monk in the Ming Dynasty."
