Yuantong Temple
Yuantong Temple

The Yuantong Temple is one of the oldest Buddhist temples of Kunming. Founded under the Tang Dynasty (618-907) and rebuilt under the Yuan Dynasty (1276-1368), Yuantong Temple is construsted base on the traditional model of the Chinese Buddhist temples.

Along the path to the entrance you can see a monumental gate made in 1666, on which are painted the 4 characters "holy place of the comprehension of all things'. By going down to the entrance of the temple you can admire a golden statue of the smiling Buddha surrounded by four heavenly kings who are the guardians of the world and also the Buddhist law.

In the courtyard, right in the center of the basin you can see there is a pavilion which shelters a golden statue of Guanyin with thousand arms, goddess of the fecundity and protector of the daily lives. The main room contains remarkable statues of Buddha with its beams and rolled up pillars with dragons.

At the back of the temple, don't miss a bronze Thai style pavilion kept by two chimeras with a Siddharta Buddha inside that offered from Thailand. You can take your time to contemplate many other Buddhist statues and to benefit from the Zen atmosphere surrounding the Yuantong Temple in one and a half hour.
