Elephant Bathing Pool Introduction

The Elephant Bathing Pool, originally named Chuxi Pavilion.The Elephant Pool is a hexagonal, 3-m-deep stone basin about 14 km from Xianfeng Temple. According to o­ne legend the bodhissattva Puxian washed his elephants here whenever he passed by. It was o­nly a summerhouse named Chuxi Summerhouse in the Ming Dynasty, later was rebuilt to a nunnery – Chuxi Nunnery.  In the 38th Qing-Kangxi Time (1699), Zen Master Hong Chuan put up a temple o­n its basis, and then the temple was expanded in the 1st Qing-Qianlong (1736) by Monk Yue Zheng, changed the name to Elephant Bathing Pool (also called Tianhua Zen Court) for the small pool in front of the temple where Puxian has washed his elephant in tales.
It is comfortable in Emei Mountain area. The annual average temperature is 17.2℃. The rainy season falls from April to October. It is best to travel here in spring and autumn and you should not be here in rainy days. During the period from December to March, whenever there is clear sky with calm wind, after two or three o'clock in the afternoon, bending over and looking downward from the Sheshen Rock of the Golden Summit, sometimes you will find a five-colored corona floating above the clouds and your figure placed in the corona, which follows the body and never miss it. No matter how many people there are, you can o­nly see your own figure.

Elephant Bathing Pool Features

A story is told that the god of Universal Benevolence gives a bath to his white elephant in the hexagon pool of the temple every time he passes by here, hence the name "Elephant Bathing Pool".
Near the Elephant Pool, there is a temple at an elevation of 2,100 m: Chuxi Yan from the Ming era. It consists of o­nly o­ne hall in which three Buddhist sculptures stand: Guanyin, Dizang and Dashi Zhi. There are many monkeys in this region. o­n mountain slopes, monkeys often come out to "rob" you: they may extend their hands begging for food. If you show your empty hands, they usually let the matter go. But sometimes an insistent monkey will try to seize your coat to make sure you really have nothing to offer.
Kwan-yin Hall, Laughing Buddha Hall and Great Hero Hall were constructed in this region in the Xianfeng and Tongzhi Times.  And Great Hero Hall had a reconstruction from Monk Bian Xiang in the 33rd Minguo (1944), and had two repairs in 1953 and 1984.  During the repair in 1984, the temple was added with more views of Shone Moon House behind Kwan-yin Hall and a guesthouse, became an important protected temple of China.
