Huangling Temple
Three Gorges - Huangling Temple Huangling Temple is the oldest example of the classical Chinese architecture in the Three Gorges region, originally built in the 500 B.C..Numerous renovations have taken place at the site,and the current structure built in the later period of the Qing Dynasty (early 17th century).The temple was built to commemorate a legendary figure in the Chinese historyDayu,who was responsible for the water irrigation system in the area.Then the main structure here contains a statue delicated to the national hero.

Before the huge water conservatory project along here began, the region was greatly affected by heavy floods and the marks on the pillars in the hall detail the water levels in the area across the years.

There are two red walls around Guanling which is divided into 5 yards and 4 halls which appear very solemn and grand. In the main hall, there is a silk banner embroidered with words of praise"The fame spreads over China" which was written by emperor Tongzhi in the Qing Dynasty. There are tens of hundreds of tablets inscribed by famous persons of the Ming and Qing Dynasties. Of all the tablets,the one of Guan Yu's Statue and the ones inscribed by Yuan Hongdao and Yuan Zhongdao,writings of the Ming Dynasty,are the most valuable.
