If you come to Kunming, you can’t miss out Jindian Gongyuan. Made of bronze and wood the Jindian Gongyuan temple is one of the largest Tao temples in the world. The unique architecture uses the exquisite layout of bronze tiles. In the morning, it shines like a Golden fire house.

Built in the year 1602 to commemorate the 30th anniversary of Emperor Waanli’s reign, the Jindian Gongyuan is a symbol of prosperity in Yunnan during the Ming Dynasty. It still retains its original glory, sitting quaintly amidst the Ming Feng Mountains. The bronze used in the temple bear the same feature as that of the coins issued during the Ming Era during the 16th century. With over 200 tonnes of bronze laid over it, Jindian GoÂ…ngyuan has branched camellias and exotic flowering plants around it. The 14-ton Great Bell from the Yongle era is the star attraction besides the temple. Today, the temple serves as the Tao-he Palace or the hall of Supreme Harmony.
