Chengxu Daoist Temple

Zhouzhuang, China

Built during the Song Dynasty, the Chengxu Daoist Temple is located in Zhouzhuang Water Town, Jiangsu Province, China. It is also known as the Shengtang (Sanctity) Hall and is one of the major attractions in the town. The temple has two main halls, Doumu and Shengdi, which are still used for prayers, religious ceremonies, and meditation. The beauty of the temple and the Shengdi, Yuhuang, and Wenchang pavilions are typical of the Taoist/Daoist architecture of that period. On 22nd and 23rd of the sixth Chinese lunar month, Taoist priests and masters come here to celebrate the local festival with the chanting of prayers and music, which also draws many tourists to the spot.
