Due to the constant rainfall, Hanging Temple, a historic artifact under state protection, is not available for visitors who appreciate it from a distance.
It is reported that the continuing rainfall in recent days has contributed to rock fall on decorative animal sculptures in the drum tower of Hanging Temple on National Holiday in 2015 (the first day of October) of China. For the visitors’ safety, officials of Mt. Heng Scenic Spot Management Commission decide to close it temporarily. Tourists have to buy special tickets to look at the view from the small plaza but cannot go to the temple. The date of reopening will be around 1 May 2016.
Hanging Temple was erected in late North Wei Dynasty standing in the western side of the entrance of Mountain Heng Hunyuan county Shanxi Province. With about 50 meters high above the ground, it is considered the oldest wood-structure building in the world.
We have been there yesterday (13th March 2016 ) and it was covered by scaffold totally . So we think it is not necssary to come here to have a look it anymore .
