Hanging Temple: Amazing Architecture - Huangshan China

The Hanging Temple of Hengshan literally hangs on the side of Huangshan Mountain China, sustain by only a few wooden poles. This temple was built during the late Northern Wei Dinasty (386-534AD), by a monk called Liao Ran. It was restored during the 1900s.

The gravity-defying Hanging Temple of Huangshan is comprised of 40 chambers, liked through a network of passageways, and hosts not one but three religions. Confucianism, Taoism and Buddhism are all worshiped here, in harmony. Similar, in a way, to the Hanging Houses of Cuenca, the Hanging Temple of Huangshan is an amazing display of architecture.
