Daming 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.
Daming Temple is located in the northwestern part of the Yangzhou city, China. It is a famous Buddhist temple built in the 5th century. This is where the Tang dynasty monk Jianzhen studied and became superior of the temple and also a famed teacher of Buddhism in the region. Jianzhen played an integral role in the development of Buddhism in Japan and after five failures he finally succeeded in crossing the seas and building the Toshodaiji Temple in Nara. In 1973, a memorial hall was built within the Daming Temple honoring Jianzhen and commemorating the renewed friendship between China and Japan.
Daming Temple is one of Yangzhou’s most popular destinations and is well known amongst the cultural related attractions and monuments that the city has embraced.
