English Yongle Gong

Yongle Gong is a historic Taoist temple complex (Despite misleadingly referred to as Yongle Palace due to literal translation) in Ruicheng, Shanxi Province, notable for its Yuan dynasty murals. Built over a period of 128 years between 1240 and 1358 and dedicated to the Taoist saint of Lü Dongbin, the temple was originally located in Yongle Town some 15 miles west of its current site. It was dismantled and relocated piece-by-piece to the current location between 1958 to 1966 since construction of the Sanmenxia Dam flooded its original site. It was one of 180 sites listed as the first batch of Major Historical and Cultural Site Protected at the National Level.

English Yongle Palace (Yongle Temple)

Yongle Palace ("Palace of Eternal Joy") is renowned for its many Yuan Dynasty murals, which are considered to be some of the finest artistic treasures in China. It is the largest of all Taoist temples remaining from the Yuan Dynasty. This important Taoist temple complex was not always located where it is now; it was moved brick-by-brick, painting-by-painting from 1959 - 1964 to allow for the construction of the Sanmen Gorge Reservoir on the Yellow River. Fortunately, the priceless murals for which the palace is best known were well preserved in the move. The original monastery was built between 1247 and 1262 to commemorate Lu Dongbin, one of the eight Taoist imortals, who was born in the town of Yongle in 789. The full complex took 111 years to build and was complted in 1358. The palace comprises of several buildings constructed along a line running from south to north. In each of the main halls, the walls are covered by vivid paintings which are considered the most outstanding examples of Taoist painting in China.
