A famous Taoist holy site, Dai temple is located in Tai'an City, south of Mt. Taishan. It was built in the Qin and Han Dynasties and was a place where emperors worshiped the Taishan Gods and held sacrifices. Along with the Forbidden City in Beijing, the Temple of Confucius, and the Chengde Mountain Resort, Dai Temple makes up one of China's four most famous ancient architectural complexes. These majestic palaces are well-preserved with huge frescoes and ancient inscriptions from the Song Dynasty.
