The Putuo Zongcheng Temple 普陀宗乘之庙 of Chengde, is a Qing Dynasty era Buddhist temple complex built between 1767 and 1771, during the reign of the Qianlong Emperor (1735-1796). It is located near the Chengde Mountain Resort. Along with the equally famed Puning Temple, it is one of the Eight Outer Temples of Chengde. The temple was modeled after the Potala Palace of Tibet, hence the Putuo Zongcheng has been nicknamed the "Little Potala Palace". Since it was modeled after the Potala palace, the temple represents a fusion of Chinese and Tibetan architectural styles. The temple complex covers a surface area of some 220,000 square meters, making it one of the largest in China. Many of its halls and pavilions are adorned with copper and gold tiled roofs, adding to the splendor of the site.

  • I just got back from a Beijing and Chengde trip. I would love to blog about the trip but for one who does not read or understand Mandarin as well, it will be difficult. One thing is for sure, I will include your slides on my new blog. Thanks for sharing. Please provide me links to other photos of trips to China you have taken.
