The Jiming Temple is an active Buddhist temple that overlooks the City Wall and Xuanwu Lake. One of the oldest temples in the city, it was established in 300AD during the Eastern Jin dynasty. Destroyed almost several decades ago, it was rebuilt in 1981.Consists of four major parts:

  • Guanyin Hall
  • Huomeng Building
  • The Medicine Buddha Pagoda, where you can have a view of the city.
  • The Rouge Well, it is said that the emperor of the Southern Tang dynasty and his concubine hid in the well to escape enemies. Stains of rouge were left on the well and, hence, the name. 

During the spring, the temple trees are alive with cherry blossoms. The general feeling one gets in this temple is a wondrous mix of legend, tranquility and prayer.
