Inside is a seven-meter-high copper pagoda inscribed with Buddhist images and texts.  Fuhu Temple, the biggest Buddhist temple o­n the mountain, has 13 halls. In the temple, a 6-meter 17-storeyed bronze tower made in the Yuan Dynasty(1271-1368) has some 4,700 engraved Buddhist figurines o­n it.

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

Fuhu temple Features

The mountain shape in front of the temple resembles a lying tiger, so this is how the Fuhu Temple got its name.Built in Tang Dynasty, the Fuhu Temple originally called "God Dragon Hall". It is said that in Song Dynasty and when it was repaired and enlarged, people all thought its name should be changed into "the Fuhu Temple" because the nearby mountain is like a lying fierce tiger very much.
In 1651, the abbot named "Guanzhi" built a "Huxijing House" near the temple. When the monk named "Jiyuan" became the abbot, a number of monks planted altogether 110,000 evergreen arbors such as hazel, Nan, China fir, and cypress around the temple.
After the trees grew up, the succeeding abbot beautified the temple yard environment. Presently the Fuhu Temple claims to the title of "lying tiger hiding in thick forest".
The main construction of the Fuhu Temple is "the Precious Hall of the Great Hero", in its left is "the Yuchu Building", and in right is "the Huayan Pagoda Pavilion". With 13 layers and 5.8 meters high, the copper tower built in Yuan Dynasty is behind the pavilion. The eight angels of this tower body are symmetric; o­n the tower body there carved with splendid Buddhist scriptures "the Sutra of the Master of Healthiness".
