Dai Temple – A Man-Made Sacred Wonder

23 August 2009 2 Comments

For those whose feet do not ache after ascending Mount Taishan, the Dai Temple in downtown Tai’an is a leisurely stroll. This is where some of the emperors stayed before or after their ascension. But “Qianlong slept here” does not begin to explain the temple’s status. The old cypresses and tortoise-supported steles are better testament to its historical value. Being on the top of one of Five Sacred Mountains, Dai Temple is indeed very beautiful place with history over 3000 years. Below are some incredible photos of the temple.
