Xumifushou Temple

Xumifushou TempleLying just to the south of the Putuo Zongsheng Temple, Sumero's Temple of Happiness and Longevity (Xumi fushou zhi miao) is the most southerly of the northern temple group. It was built in 1780 in order to house a visit by the Sixth Panchen Lama, so the 37,900 square meters of space was designed mostly in a Tibetan form, in the style of the Shigatse Monastery, the Tashilhunpo. The Panchen Lama eventually made his visit in 1781.

The Xumifushou Temple is still fairly run down, although at present is being heavily renovated. The main building here is the Hall of Excellence and Grandeur (Miaogao zhuangyan dian), a triple-tiered building that the most notable feature is the eight golden dragons lining the roof. The octagonal tower at the northern end of the temple, whose roof is prettily glazed with yellow tile, is also worth visiting.

Tips: The Xumifushou Temple is the nearest to the intersection of Shanzhuang donglu and Shizigou lu. It is just south of the Putuo Zhongsheng Temple, on Shizigou lu.
