Tanzhe Temple (Tánzhè sì)

Tanzhe Temple (Tánzhè sì) Review

Farther along the road past Jietai Temple, Tanzhe Temple is a Buddhist complex nestled in a grove of zhe (cudrania) trees. Established around AD 400 and once home to more than 500 monks, Tanzhe was heavily damaged during the Cultural Revolution. It's since been restored, but if you look closely at some of the huge stone tablets, or bei, littered around the site you'll see that many of the inscriptions have been destroyed. The complex makes an ideal side trip from Jietai Temple or Marco Polo Bridge.
