The Baoguo Temple is the first temple o­ne meets along the mountain way and stresses love and patriotism. Baoguo Temple sits at the foot of the mountain at the entrance and exit of the mountain area. It was built in the 16th century, enlarged in the 17th century by Emperor Kangxi and recently renovated. Its 3.5-meter porcelain Buddha, made in 1415, is housed near the Sutra Library.
Baoguo Temple is the center of Buddhist activities in Mt. Emei. The climate here is mild and trees are verdant and serried. Visiting this temple, you can enjoy either the renowned ancient buildings and precious Buddhist cultural relics or peculiar natural attractions and rare animals and plants.
It is comfortable in Emei Mountain area. The annual average temperature is 17.2℃. The rainy season falls from April to October.

No matter how many people there are, you can o­nly see your own figure.
