Mingjiao 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.
Mingjiao Temple was first built during the Tang dynasty, which ruled China from 618 to 907 and is situated in the east of central Hefei within the ancient moat system. Mingjiao Temple or Mingjiao si is one of China's state-protected Buddhist complexes. The site of the temple is also famous as the place where, during the Three Kingdoms era, Cao Cao of the Wei dynasty, which ruled China from 220 to 265, trained his soldiers.
The present day temple has a sixteenth century architectural look, after the renovations that took place then, despite the fact that the temple was partially destroyed by the Red Guards during the Cultural Revolution and restored in 1991. The temple is known for a number of reasons, including the fact that on the frequent windy days here, the bells in the eaves peal, and that the halls here house over 30 Buddhist statues. Visitors here would do well to try out the vegetarian restaurant that sits beside the temple.
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.
