Tour description

Bamboo Temple (Qiongzhu) is a famous Buddhist temple situated about twelve kilometers from Kunming in the Yu'an Mountains. Established in the Song Dynasty (960 -1234) there is a charming legend about its name's origin, involving two brothers hunting a rhinoceros in the woods and finding magical monks who vanished leaving their walking sticks planted in the ground. The next day a bamboo forest had appeared. The brothers built the temple in honor of the monks.
