Heavenly King Temple

First built in the Ming Dynasty, Heavenly King Hall was originally a place where Buddhist scriptures were translated and printed. The site was expanded in 1759 to become a complete set of temples. The main halls in TianWang are the Bell Tower, Drum Tower, DaCiZhenRu Hall, Glazed-Tile Tower and Heavenly King Hall.

Also known as 'Xi Tian Fan Jing' (Western Paradise Hall), it was a Zen Lama temple during the Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644).
