The Baolin Temple in Foshan, China was first built in the year 942. In the early years of the Jingtai Emperor’s reign in the Ming Dynasty, Baolin Temple was the chief local temple. As an important Buddhist site, it was widely visited by worshipers.

The present temple was rebuilt in 1996, bordering the Desheng River, near the Qingyun Double Pagodas. The main pavilion sits against the mountain, occupying an area of 120,000 square meters. As visitors ascend the steps, they see a temple gate flanked by two giant, ferocious guardians. The structures inside the temple include the Palace of the Heavenly King, Nine-Dragon Hall, Kwan-yin Palace, a bell tower, a drum tower, a dining hall, a visitors’ hall, and a grand hall.
