Yanqing Daoist Temple

Situated on Shengli Street to the northeast of Bao Gong Lake, Yanqing Daoist Temple was formerly called Chongyang Temple because it was built to commemorate the originator of Quanzhen Daoism in the Northern Song Dynasty and was renamed as Yanqing Temple in the early days of the Ming Dynasty. Later dynasties found the temple rebuilt and destroyed many times.
