Xianglu Temple


Xianglu Temple (also named "Censer Temple") was built at the cliff bank of the Yellow River (the second-longest river in China and the cradle of Chinese civilization), northeast of Jiaxian County in north Shaanxi Province. One side of the temple is connected to the county, while the other three sides face the Yellow River.



Under the temple, there lies a huge stone pillar, which is shaped like a censer, hence the name of Xianglu Temple (Censer Temple). On top of the stone pillar, there is a Guanyin (a Bodhisattva) Hall which is connected to the cliff bank with a three-meter long crosspiece.

In the temple, there are main halls, wing halls, stone gates and stone arches. Standing at Xianglu Temple and facing the Yellow River, you can get a full and awe-inspiring view, especially at dusk, when the afterglow shines on the buildings and the Yellow River.

After seeing the temple, visitors can also visit the village nearby where you can see unique cave dwellings (traditional cave houses of Northwest China). China Highlights can arrange the tour for you. Contact us for a customized tour.
