Among the temples in Songshan of Zhengzhou, Henan Province, Huishan Temple is the least conspicuous. It hides in the valley under the green peaks of Taishi Mountain, standing in the wind and rain for thousands of years, and elegantly portraying the Buddhism spirit.






Compared with other monasteries in Songshan Mountain, it is very lonely and has no incense. Not many people know about it and only a few people visit it. However, Huishan Temple is full of legend.






It was the center for monks to take orders in the ancient Songshan region, and was named as the Four Temples in Songshan together with Shaolin Temple, Fawang Temple and Songyue Temple.



The main hall in the temple is the only remaining and largest architecture of the Yuan Dynasty in Songshan.





The Pagoda of Jingzang Chan Master Tower, is the earliest octagonal brick pagoda in China.


On August 1, 2010, 11 outstanding historical buildings in 8 places, including the Huishan Temple complex, were selected on the World Cultural Heritage List with the name of the historical buildings in heaven and earth.
