Why got its this name
Yunju Temple was first built at the beginning of Tang dynasty. At first it was called Zhiquan Temple. As recorded, there are always clouds in the hillside. Thus the temple changed its name Yunju Temple. Yun means cloud while ju means live in Chinese.
Yunjun Temple has long histories. It saved lots of stones, towers and Buddhist relics. The carved stone Buddhist Tripitaka is famous in the world for its long long history and great inscription. It is called holly place for Buddhists and Great Wall of all carved inscriptions.
Yunju Temple is now a famous Buddhist monastery and religious place in the whole world. It is called the Great Temple in North China.
