Located in the mountains 5 km north of Liushan town, Nanzhao county in Henan’s Nanyang city, the temple enjoys equal popularity with another two Buddhist temples in Nanyang — Xiangyan Temple in Xichuan county and Puti Temple in Zhenping county.

It is a provincial cultural relic protection unit and a holy place for the Chan, a school of Buddhism in south Henan province.

It was founded by an eminent monk in the 4th year of Changqing under the reign of Emperor Tang Muzong (824 AD).
