What people are saying:

Xiangzi Temple is located at No. 18, Xiangzi Temple Street near the South Gate of Xi'an. Built in the Song Dynasty, flourished in the Yuan and Ming Dynasties, Quanzhen Taoist Temple. According to legend, it is the former residence of Han Xiangzi, one of the Eight Immortals, and the place where Han Xiangzi became a monk. Therefore, the Xiangzi Temple in Xi'an has been the birthplace of Xiangzi culture in the past. Xiangzi Temple is also the only Taoist ancestor temple existing in Xi'an. The Xiangzi Temple consists of the temple area, the south courtyard and the north courtyard. The temple covers an area of 2.5 acres, 88 meters from east to west, and 7 meters at its widest point from north to south. It is said that this is the inner courtyard of Han Yu's mansion, Han Xiangzi's uncle Han Yu. In order to practice cultivation, an underground chamber was built here, which is also called Xiangzi Cave. Decades ago, when the air-raid shelter was dug in the Xiangzi Temple, a dark room was dug, which is said to be the Xiangzi Cave of that year.
