Tanzhe Temple Introduction

Tanzhe Temple is o­ne of the biggest temples in the suburbs of Beijing, covering an area of 6.8 hectares. Situated in West Mentougou District, it has grand palaces, halls, altars, rooms with different characteristics and towers, terraces, pavilions, and studies of unusual beauty. Ancient trees and fresh flowers spread all over the temple in delightful contrast to the man-made hills, layers of greens and winding streams. Red walls, green tiles and upturned eaves are set off by green pines and cypresses. All these scenes, together with the magnificent halls and tranquil courtyards, highlight the grandeur and orderliness of the main buildings.The temple was built in the first year of the reign of Emperor Huai of the Western Jin Dynasty (A.D. 307). As o­ne of the eldest and largest Buddhist temples in the Beijing area, it already has a history of more than 1700 years, which makes it older than the city of Beijing itself. This is proven by a popular proverb widely spread in the Beijing area which says that “Tanzhe Temple appeared first, then came the Beijing city”.

Tanzhe Temple Features

In addition, Tanzhe Temple also played an important role in the history of Buddhism in China. There were numerous eminent monks coming forth from the temple in every dynasty and there were emperors going o­n a pilgrimage to the temple in each dynasty. No wonder there is an old saying that goes as “Linyin Temple and Tanzhe Temple are most famous temples of the southern and northern China". Tanzhe Temple is located at the foot of Ma’an Mountain, in the south-east of the Men Tougou district. The halls are built in accordance with the changes in the mountain’s height. With its back against Baozhu Peak, the temple faces north and is surrounded by nine peaks. The huge mountains block the cold current coming from the north-west and give the seat of the Tanzhe Temple a warm and humid climate, which in turn blesses the place with an extremely beautiful natural environment marked by flourishing plants, and especially numerous ancient trees and famous flowers.
