The eaves spread their wings and have a strange shape. The whole building is composed of Zhaimen, Zhaishen and attic (Zhaiding Stone Brake). It has 12 stories and is 56 meters high. It is a wooden structure. The original 9 storeys, Zhaiding Temple Temple of Heaven, implies the meaning of "nine heavens". The top three floors were built in 1956 when the building was repaired.

New Shibao Zhai, which has reappeared, has become a "bonsai" in a large river on the Yangtze River surrounded by a huge embankment and enjoys the reputation of "Xiaopenglai" in the Yangtze River.

About history

At the end of the Ming Dynasty, Tan Hong, the peasant leader, uprising, was called Shibaozhai. The Temple of Heaven at the top of Shibaozhai Peak was built in the Ming Dynasty (1572-1619) and was founded by Yin Yu of Zhizhou, Zhongzhou, more than 400 years ago.

Shibaozhai is a lonely peak that rises from the ground to the top of the mountain in the early years of the Qing and Qianlong dynasties. It built a temple on the top of the mountain with the help of iron wires on the wall. During the Jiaqing period, skilled craftsmen were hired to study how to replace the iron wires. So the nine-storey Pavilion was built according to the situation of the mountain. From then on, pilgrims and tourists could avoid the pain of climbing iron wires and go up to the top of the mountain directly. In 1956, it was rebuilt to 12. Floor, now it has become a "little Penglai" for tourists to look at the scenery of the Yangtze River.
