Golden Temple is located at the top of Phoenix
Song Mountain, about 11km (7 miles) northeast of Kunming. The roof
of the Daoist temple is made from copper and in the sunlight it
glistens like gold.
The present Golden Temple was designed by Wu Sangui
during the Ming dynasty (1368-1644). The temple is 7 meters (23ft)
high and about 38 sq meters in area. Inside the temple there are
Buddhist statues, inscribed boards, beams, pillars, well-screens
and other decorations, which are all made of bronze.
