Baosheng Temple was built in the second year (503) of the Tianjian reign in the Liang Dynasty. However, it was destroyed in 845 during Tang Dynasty and then rebuilt in 1073 during the Song Dynasty. It houses the 18 classic arhat statues from Yang Huizhi, a Tang Dynasty master of Sculpture. However, due to the weather and chaos caused by war, half of them have been destroyed. [Molifengke/]
