    The showpiece of the Green Ram Temple is the 20 meter high Eight Traigrams Pavilion. It was rebuilt in 1873 during the reign of Emperor Tongzhi and in 1883 during the reign of Emperor Guangxu. It is a three-storey octagonal pavilion with a round roof and square base on which the eight trigrams - Qian, Dui, Zhen, Li, Xun, Kan, Gen and Kun are engraved. 16 stone pillars arranged in double rows support the eaves. Inside and outside the pavilion are some 81 dragons. Enshrined inside is a statue of Laozi, the supreme venerable sovereign, riding a green ox heading west towards the Hangu Pass.

    Green Ram Temple

    The Green Ram Temple, otherwise known as Qingyang Temple, is one of the most famous Taoist temples in China. The temple was originally built in the Tang Dynasty (618-907), a period when Taoism was flourishing. Most of the parts of the temple that remain in existence are restorations from the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), including Sanqing Hall, Doulao Hall, Hunyuan Palace, the Eight Trigrams Pavilion, and Wuji Palace.

    Why is the temple called Green Ram Temple? Well it all went back to a meeting between a Taoist high priest called Lao-tzu who was to meet a friend here. The friend arrived only to see a boy with two goats and so thought the boy was his friend the priest!

    Admission: Y10.

    Qing Yang Taoist Temple is the No. 1 Taoist temple in west Sichuan. This is the Holy Land where Laozi once preached the Way. It is the birth place for the first patriach of Taoism.

    The Eight Trigram Pavilion is a symbolic architecture of Taoism which is located at the front part of the temple. It was structured according to Ying and Yang philosophy.

    There is a Bronze incense burner at the entrance of the Temple.

    Qinyang Gong Taoist temple

    Qinyang Gong Taoist temple, Chengdu, China

    I would recommend a visit to Qinyang Gong, a Taoist temple, to walk around and admire the beautiful and colorful temples. Have some delicious tea and eat at the teahouse. Drinking tea seems to be Chengdu's favorite pasttime! Every temple or park has a teahouse, where people sit around in bamboo chairs, drink jasmine or green tea, and chat or play mah-jong. I would imagine that there are groups of friends who meet up every afternoon to while away the day!

    I like inscribed tablets in QingYang Daoist Temple, the most strange one is this, every character is made of two Chinese characters.
