Jinshan Temple, also known as Golden Hill Temple, is located atop of Jinshan Hill in the center of Jinshan Park, Zhenjiang, Jiangsu Province. Built 1,600 years ago, the temple became well-known due to Emperor Kangxi's visits during the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) and the temple has been involved in numerous popular folk legends throughout Chinese history.

The Temple is in fact a structural complex comprising multiple temples and Buddhist halls. The temple initially gained popularity during the Tang Dynasty (618-907), and has been destroyed and rebuilt numerous times. The temple is visible from far away and it has become a symbol of the city. It attracts millions of visitors every year.

Admission: 45 yuan (US$7.12)/person
