Ancient Building Groups on the Wudang Mountain
2004/06/09



       The construction of buildings on the Wudang Mountain began in the Tang Dynasty, and was enlarged in the Song and Yuan Dynasties. During the reign of Emperor Yongle of the Ming Dynasty, from 1413 to 1418, 33 building clusters including 8 palaces and 2 Taoist temples were constructed. After hundreds of years' rises and falls, the area became desolated in the middle of the Qing Dynasty. The existing buildings include 6 palaces, 5 Taoist temples, 11 temples; 10 cave temples and 12 bridges. They are scattered according to the description of how the Taoist priest Zhenwu became immortal which was recorded in a Taoist scripture. With the Surrounding beautiful natural sceneries, the buildings look more mystical and solemn. The major buildings are the palace of Supreme Harmony, the Palace of Zixiao, the Palace of Nanyan, the Taoism Temple of Fuzhen and the Archway of Zhishixuanyue. The palace of Supreme Harmony consists of the Golden Hall and the Bronze Hall. The Golden Hall, the Palace of Zixiao and the Archway of Zhishixuanyue are listed in the major national historical monuments designated for state protection by the State Council. A great number of Taoism historical relics preserved in the buildings on the Wudang Mountain are of great value.
