Xuankong Si Monastery

From the series “The Surviving Artifacts of the Confucian Civilization”
Fans of the Confucian culture have an amazing opportunity to visit the Hanging Temple. The monastery is located in the province of Shanxi. It was built against a hillside of the sacred mountain Hengshan. The Hanging Temple is a unique temple complex, which combines the Taoist, Buddhist and Confucian shrines. The monastery was built in 491. Its main feature is its location. All 40 halls and pavilions are literally hanging over a precipice that inadvertently gives an impression that they could collapse at any moment.
