Qingdan Temple is famous for its wide distribution of sandalwood trees and the astonishing number of ancient sandalwood trees. It was originally named Yunfeng Temple. It is located in the Qingdang Canyon composed of Chu and Han Mountains. Because the canyon is full of sandalwood trees, it was renamed Qingdan Temple.

Mr. Xu Shuxin, a famous poet, wrote a sentence in Youqing Sandalwood Temple: It's cold in spring on the Grenade Mountains, and the language of Guyou people is incomplete. Blue sandalwood has little nectar, but Xuanbutterfly is in a single shape. Mr. Min Yinnan, a famous painter and calligrapher, inscribed the Ginkgo Tree of Qingdang Temple: Ginkgo biloba in the temple, which was passed down to Xiao Tiaozhi. Shy at first, but foolish today. Is it unjust to be a lover forever? Whether the world can compare or not is always a touching poem.

Architectural features

Blue sandalwood autumn scenery

The "autumn color" portal of Qingtan Temple is an archaic building with three doors, four columns and two vertical eaves and bucket arches, and a mixture of wood structure and reinforced concrete structure.

Menfang is a narrow valley about 1.5 kilometers long, covered with Green Sandalwood trees. There are 36 trees over a thousand years old and countless trees over a hundred years old. At the end of the narrow valley is the Qingdao Temple.

At that time, the abbot of the temple, Huicong, washed Yuefei's eyes with the tender leaves of the Qingdan Temple every day. Because the leaves of the almond tree had the effect of clearing fire and brightening eyes, Yuefei's eyes were soon after. He was able to recover and return to the battlefield to kill the enemy. In the Song Dynasty, a stone building was built to commemorate the building, but it was destroyed during the "Cultural Revolution". The government rebuilt the building in 1985. The building area is 112 square meters. It retains the thin gold body "Jinjie" stone tablet on the plaque of the original building. There are statues of Yue Fei sitting in the building.
