Zhenguo Temple

Zhenguo Temple, located in Hedong Village, 15 kilometers northeast of the seat of Pingyao, was first built in 963, the seventh year of reign of Emperor Tianhui in the Northern Han during the Five dynasties.

Zhenguo Temple has 13 halls and more than 10 huge figures of Buddha. Wanfo Hall is the main hall. Square-shaped while its roof resembles an umbrella, the hall is a rare well-preserved wooden structure built in the Five dynasties. Additionally, the colored clay figurines and frescos in the temple are of high art value.
