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
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
