Changde & Yueyang & Hengyang 2017/05/22 View:1823

Established by Master Huisi, Fuyan Temple is located at the foot of Zhibo Peak. Inscribed on the temple gate is a vertical couplet which reads "an ancient temple for six dynasties" and "a holy place for doctrine transmitting", while the horizontal scroll reads "court of China" which shows the significant status of the temple in Buddhism history.

At the back of the temple is Hupao (Tiger Running) Spring. Inside the temple, there is a 1,400 year-old ginkgo with a circumference of 5 meters. Legend has it that the tree was converted into monk by Master Huisi. The tree has been well preserved in the temple.
