Meng Jiangnu Temple
Adjust font size:
This temple is located in the Shanhai Pass District of Qinhuangdao.


Legend says that in the time of Qin Shi Huang, the First Emperor of the Qin Dynasty, Meng Jaingnv's husband was conscripted to help build the Great Wall. Missing her husband very much, Meng jiangnu set out on the long journey to see him.


When she arrived at eh foot of the wall, she learned that her husband had been worked to death and buried beneath it, and she wept so many tears that a huge section of the Great Wall crumbled away.



The sorrowful woman then drowned herself in the sea, and a temple was erected to commemorate her. A clay sculpture of Meng Jaingnnu stands in front of the temple hall. Dressed in a black gown, she gazes out at the sea, her expression revealing her grief and indignation.
