Quite a contrast in architectural styles between the ancient graceful curving roofs of the Jing’an Temple (Temple of Peace and Tranquility) and the modern blocks surrounding it.

Like many temples in China, the Jing’an has undergone extensive renovations during the course of its long history. Indeed, the original temple was built on a different site in 247 AD and relocated to this one in 1216. Subsequently, it was rebuilt during the Qing Dynasty and has also just undergone a major renovation.
