At the lower parts of Mount Emei, the magnificent Fuhu Temple is surrounded by the lush greenery of the Bu Jin Lin forest, which is said to comprise 109,000 Phoebe zhennan trees planted there by monk Ji Wan during Qing Dynasty (1644-1912). Inside the temple, flowers are blooming at every corner, infusing the site with refreshing fragrances.

First built in Tang Dynasty (618-907), the temple was remodeled during Southern Song Dynasty (1127-1279) and rebuilt during Qing Dynasty. It is now a nunnery that enshrines Maitreya Buddha, Samantabhadra Bodhisattva and Sakyamuni Buddha.

Built in Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), the Huayan Pagoda is protected by a pavilion next to the main hall of the building complex. Measuring 5.8 meters in height, the copper structure is exquisitely made, carrying 4,700 Buddhist statuettes.
