Tanzhe Si and Jie Tai Si photos copyrighted by: BeijingChinaWorld
Tanzhe Si 48km (30 miles) W of Beijing; Jietai Si 35km (22 miles) W of Beijing Buried in the hills west of Beijing, Tanzhe Si (Temple of the Pool and Wild
Mulberry) and Jietai Si (Temple of the Ordination Platform) are the tranquil kinds of Chinese temples visitors imagine before they actually come to China. These temples were unusual because they received imperial support (Qing rulers preferred Tibetan Buddhism), and both have long been popular with local pilgrims. They were also loved by early Western residents, who rented out halls inside the temples.
