4. Baoguang Monastery-Guihu Lake Scenic Spot
The magnificent monastery in Xindu District has a long history and a rich collection of relics, including some of the most precious items such as the magnolia delavayi, palm-leaf manuscript and Sarira. The Arhat Hall in the monastery, built in the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), is the oldest and largest of its kind in China.
Constructed in the Tang Dynasty, the lake is regarded as one of Xindu’s major cultural legacies, because it is closely associated with Yang Sheng’an (1488-1559), who was the number one scholar of the imperial examination, an examination system in Imperial China designed to select the best administrative officials for the state's government.
