What travelers say:

The ancient Shousheng Temple was built in the Song Dynasty and has a history of more than 700 years. It was one of the "14 largest jungles" in the Buddhist circle of Taizhou. The temple is located in Qintong, a thousand-year-old town known as the water town Zeguo. It was one of the 14 largest jungles in Dongtai at that time and the first of the nine temples in Qintong, with a long history and profound cultural heritage. The Buddhist scripture building in the monastery is also known as the Shuiyun Tower. It lives near the lake and leans against a railing. The sky and the water are the same color, sparkling, and water mallards play. At that time, literati and guests gathered, reciting poems and chanting, with a strong humanistic atmosphere. During the Cultural Revolution, the temple was unfortunately destroyed, and it was in the prosperous age. With the consent of the Taizhou Municipal People’s Government, the ancient Shousheng Temple was restored and rebuilt in the beautiful Qinhu National Wetland Park.

Additional Information

Introduction

The Ancient Shousheng Temple Scenic Area is located in Jiangyan District. It was built during the Song dynasty and one of the "14 jungles" of the Taizhou Buddhist community. A Bhaisajyaguru (Buddha of healing and medicine) Pagoda stands in the scenic area, several dozens of meters in height. It is divided into three sides featuring each of the three bodies of Bhaisajyaguru, namely the "Nirmanakaya" or incarnation, "Sambhogakaya" or body of bliss, and the "Dharmakaya" or body of truth. The Buddha statues look magnificent, with bodies entirely made of copper and faces covered in gold.
