Qingxu Temple  Qingxu Temple

On the north side of East Avenue sits Qingxu Temple, which is now the location of the Pingyao Museum. This Taoist Temple used to be a venue where eminent people and scholars frequently visited, studied and meditated on the Taoist teachings.

Qingxu Temple was first built in Tang Dynasty and prospered in the Yuan Dynasty, covering an area of more than 6,000 square meters. The museum is composed of three exhibitions: Taoist civilization, the history of Pingyao, and valuable cultural relics. It is worthy to see for its architecture. The exhibits in the museum are rich including various Buddha statues of the Ming and Qing Dynasty, and dozens of precious wood carvings of the Ming Dynasty. And the special local artworks – Statues of Opera Actors, are very vivid in shape and sharp in color and perfectly preserved. This is one must-see museum if you are interested in local featured architecture and artwork.
