Yufeng Temple

Yufeng Temple, a small lamasery, located at the southern foot of Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, about 13 kilometers from Lijiang Old Town.
First built in 1756 during the reign of Emperor Qianlong of the Qing Dynasty, Yufeng Temple used to have nine courtyards, but only the gate tower, the main hall and two courtyards have remained.
The whole Yufeng Temple shows a distinctive and conjunct architectural style of Han Buddhism, Tibetan Buddhism, Taoism and the local Naxi Dongba Religion due to the cultural communion between different minorities and different areas in the Qing Dynasty. It is the compatible and harmonious trait that makes the Naxi culture develop and enrich so quickly.
The Lamasery has a Great Camellia tree in the northern courtyard. It is said that the camellia tree has been 500 years old. Actually, it is a combination of two different breeds of camellia. They were engrafted in one tree and now have grown into a huge tree with the crown shading the whole courtyard. In the eyes of the Naxi, the Great Camellia is the symbol of true love. This tree is believed to have a magical power to persuade the young lovers to cherish their lives and enjoy happy life in real world.
Yufeng Temple is a historical witness of the peaceful coexistence and syncretism of mul-tinational cultures and religions, and still plays a very important role in acculturation of Naxi Ethnic Group.
