Located on a cliff of Jinlong, of Heng Shan or Heng Mountain, Hanging Temple is in Shanxi Province. Heng Shan Mountain, known as the North Mountain is one of the five sacred mountains in China. The Temple built in a valley at the foot of Jinlong Heng Shan appeared in the 6th century. According to history, a monk named Liao Ran of the Northern Wei Dynasty built it. Meanwhile, all buildings, hanging on the hillside of the rock stand upright, and the peak of the cliff seems upside down. When you look up it seems that the building adheres to the rock.

Buildings – lined up from the south to the north and rise gradually like a dragon. More than forty halls, rooms and pavilions in the temple are divided into three groups. Passing through the gates of the temple, you can achieve two-storey buildings – two high-rise buildings stand face to face in the yard. On both sides of the temple gate – square pavilions with bells and a drum. The main building among them – Hall Shan Guan, where “sit” statues of Buddha with his disciples. Also, Statue of Confucius, Lao Tzu (scholar in ancient China) and Sakyamuni, founder of Confucianism, Taoism and Buddhism. Besides, statues in the hall are bright, and with black eyebrows.

The temple constructed in a random direction from north to south. When viewed from the house, the frame looks like hovering over the abyss. The cliff is as high as a rainbow, and seen from the opposite side of the valley, it looks like a young phoenix flying over the cliff.
