Golden Hill Temple

 Golden Hill Temple (Jin Shan Si) Golden Hill Temple (Jin Shan Si)

Golden Hill Temple is located on Wulong River, Hongtang Village in west suburb of Fuzhou. The temple was built in Song Dynasty and it is the temple in the water exclusive to Fuzhou.

Golden Hill Temple was originally a gravel stone in the center of the river. Because it resembles lithography floating on the surface, local people built a small temple on it. The appearance looks like the Golden Hill Temple in Zhenjiang, thus it was called small Golden Hill Temple.

Because of landform limitation, no imposing halls or giant Buddha statues will be found in the temple. The temple looks small and exquisite with picturesque natural scenery. The major buildings include Mazu Temple, Dabei Pavilion, Golden Hill Tower and two wing rooms. The original buildings were destroyed in the floods, the current buildings were restored in 1934.The temple is given fresh attraction after repairs were made in recent years. Surrounded by green waves that are dotted with fishing boats, the monastery is shaded by palm trees that grow on the shoals. Special idyllic pleasure can be had either by a look-around in the temple or angling at the riverside and listening to the occasional rings of fishermen's songs.
