The little-known Temple of Ancient Monarchs (Lidai Diwang Miao) is a hidden gem. It was built some 470 years ago by Ming-dynasty emperors to worship their ancestors, but the ceremonies came to an end with the fall of the Qing dynasty. Since then it has had various incarnations as schools before it opened to the public in 2004 after undergoing a 36-million- dollar restoration.






 

 The evening show of "Impression Sanjie Liu" was performed at the world's largest landscape theatre.
