In the thirty-ninth year of Wanli in the Ming Dynasty, Rongzhi Temple was named "Protecting the Nation Mingyuan Cimen Temple", and a Tibetan Master Wusi was given a sutra of twenty. For this reason, Guanyin Pavilion and Tibetan Sutra Pavilion were specially built in the temple to treasure the two treasures of the imperial town temple. In the first year of Ming Chong Frame (1628), a bell tower was built on the left of the Hall. The building is six feet tall and weighs two thousand five hundred kilograms.
