Highlights of Feilaisi

Amazing Architectural Sculpture Art: The main hall is a single eave suspended roof. The seven-tanned beam structure is three-way wide. The whole girders are beam-shaped and regular. They are made up of larger round log. The eave is simple and sturdy. The peripheral columns stand on a huge xumizuo pillar. The embossed pattern of figures, flowers and other patterns are engraved on the standing columns.

Legendary Story: When the temple was built, the address was originally set two kilometers away from the current address. All the materials were ready. On the night before the groundbreaking, the main building materials, such as pillars and beams, were missing and flew to the current address, so called “Feilaisi Temple”.

One of Best Places: Feilaisi Temple is one of the best places to watch the most beautiful “Rizhao Jinshan (Sunrise of Meili Snow Mountain)” in Meili Snow Mountain.
