The Golden Temple located on a hill
of pines and cypress is a Taoist temple which is the reproduction
of the principal pavilion of a first sanctuary. This Taoist
Temple is founded in 1602 during the Ming dynasty, and transported
in 1602 on Jizu Mountain, a sacred mountain around Dali, before
being rebuilt on the original spot.
The access of Golden temple is done by climbing successive
steps to the length of which you will cross various majestic
doors before starting the visit of the temple. There, you
can see the Bronze pavilion sheltering a statue of the Pole
Star God which is a symbol of the virtuous sovereign controlling
according to the Taoist principle of the Wuwei (not to act).
Nearby, in the garden, you will be able to admire a superb
statue of the Guanyin goddess, the symbol of fecundity, standing
on a lake.
At the bottom of the park, a pavilion on floors shelters an
imposing 14-ton-weighed bronze bell which is made in 1423.
On top of the pavillon, you can spend your time to enjoy a
splendid sight of Kunming. The visit of the park continues
with various botanical gardens like the camellia park or various
greenhouses of many world-wide vegetable species.
