There is a thousand-year-old temple in the Chishan Mountain that connects the history of China, Japan and Korea. This Fahuayuan was built in the Tang Dynasty, but the founder was a Korean, Zhang Baozhen.
Strongly in the Tang Dynasty, when the Tang Dynasty was strong, the Korean Peninsula and Dongsong Fusang had many people coming to China to "work". Zhang Baozhen, who was born in Silla at the time, was one of them. After joining the Tang Dynasty, he joined the Wuning Army as an officer and was stationed in the Chishan area. At that time, there were many Silla people living here, and almost all believed in Buddhism. Therefore, in order to give the fellow country a spiritual sustenance, Zhang Baozhen built the temple in Chishan after obtaining the consent of the Tang Dynasty officials.
