Histroy

The Qingyang Gong Daoist Temple has been famous as "No 01 Taoist Temple in Sichuan" and "No.01 Temple in West China". Now It is a famous tourism and sightseeing attraction of Taoist cultural heritage.
First built in Zhou Dynasty (1046 BC-249BC), Qingyang Taoist Temple was originally called Qingyang Fair. In the first year of Zhonghe Period (881) of Xizhong Reign of Tang Dynasty (618-907), the emperor retreated to the place of Qingyang Temple to avoid the chaos. After the upheaval was calmed down, the emperor allocated a sum of money to expand the temple and issued an imperial edict to change the name of the place into Qingyang Palace. This temple was flourishing in Tang Dynasty.
In Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644), the temple buildings built in Tang Dynasty were unfortunately damaged in natural disaster and wars. Today's Qingyang Temple is the result of successive reconstructions during the six to tenth year of Kangxi of Qing Dynasty (1644 - 1911).
