Longhu Shan – Temple of the Celestial Masters and the Lion

<4 photos>

We didn’t see much in our trip to Longhu Shan because of the rain and the flood in the river.

We came across the Temple of the Celestial Masters, with some impressive architecture.DSCF0871

Near the main gate, we saw a pair of Lions.

Never know whether medieval China has any lions as today this animal does not exist in the country.DSCF0870

Here is a close up view of the face of the lion near the main gate of the temple.

Also near the temple is this drum tower.DSCF0866

Inside the temple we also saw this symbol of Ying Yang- I have never seen one in these colors.DSCF0872

The trip was a bit of a disappointment!

  1. The lion carving is very impressive, for sure. Sorry about all the rain and the flooded river–maybe you can go back again in better weather. It looks like an interesting place to visit!

  2. That is a very good point. As far as I know lions only went as far East as India. Only a few left there, but never to China. And yet, the lion symbol is used widely.
    In Europe too, mind you! 🙂
    Take care
