Fahai Temple

Beijing, China

The Fahai Temple in Beijing has the finest examples of mural art from the Ming Dynasty. This is unusual because when we speak of Ming art we refer to their porcelain pottery. But these wall murals or frescos are exquisite. They have fortunately remained intact due to the remarkable quality of the paint used by the ancient artists and the continual care taken by the subsequent dynasties and the present government. The frescoes stretch across an area of 230 square meters of walls in the temple. They depict the different Buddhist deities and their meetings in a very artistic and sublime form.
