The monastery

Longquan Monastery is located at the foot of the Phoenix Ridge, a magnificent mountain range in western Beijing with layers of steep peaks overlooking its downtown region. First built in the early Yingli years of the Liao Dynasty in 957, with a history spanning over 1,000 years, this sacred temple has undergone myriad changes and transformations since its conception. Its history mirrors the ups and downs of China’s extensive history.
