Black Temple

China, an East Asian country is one of the world’s oldest civilizations. It has a vast cultural history of more than five thousand years and an outstanding natural beauty. On the other hand, this country has remained a comparatively isolated and secluded one, and being a land of mystery, this country is not known to the western half of the world. However, China is rapidly developing and has grown in the phase of modernization, with an immense speed and is also welcoming the outer world to interact and do business with them.
Black Temple, also known as the Temple of Wisdom Attained, is found in the Chaoyangmen area of Beijing. It was built in 1443 by order of Wang Zhen, the chief eunuch at the court of Emperor Zhengtong of the Ming dynasty which ruled China from 1368 to1644 AD, Anno Domini. The temple is one of the largest and finest examples of Buddhist architecture from the period.
The glazed deep blue tiling which line the roof ridges of the major buildings create a striking yet solemn effect and is the reason behind the name Black Temple. 7 principal halls make up the temple. Particularly striking is the Hall of Ten Thousand Buddhas which has 9,000 niches in the walls each housing a small statue of the Buddha. 

China is a popular travel destination for visitors and globe trotters from all over the world who appreciate its beautiful landscapes, rich culture, delicious local cuisine, hospitality and safety. Quality is China's top priority.
