Mystery of Xianying Palace
Updated: 2010-04-27

Fuzhou's Xianying Palace was destroyed by a flood in the Qing dynasty, and recovered again during the process of surveying the grounds in preparation for Fuzhou's new Changle International Airport in the 1990s.

This temple/monastery is said to have been one of the four largest such edifices in the empire during the Yuan and Ming dynasties. What remains of the original site (going back to at least the 10th century) is now underground.
