Huayan Temple : Huayan Temple, lying in the western part of town, got its name because it was, and remains a major temple of the Huayan sect, a sub-category of the Buddhism popular in north China. This is the largest and most perfectly preserved temple of the Liao (916-1125) and Jin (1115-1234) dynasties in China. The temple was originally built in the Liao Dynasty (916-1125 AD) as an ancestral temple to the imperial family, but later it became an important Buddhist temple in the ensuing Jin Dynasty (1115-1234 AD). The temple saw the prosperity in the Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368 AD) when the large-scale renovation for the temple was completed.

Instead of an exclusive devotion to a single religion, the Hanging Monastery distinguishes itself from other temples by including homage to Taoism, Confucianism, as well as Buddhism. Inside the monastery, sculptures of Sakyamuni, Confucius and Laotzu appear together.
