My pictures of the Golden Palace (Jīndiàn 金殿) in Wudang Shan from my 2009 trip to China. The Golden Hall is a Daoist Temple at the top of the Wudang mountain and is one of the most recognizable icons of Wudang Shan. The hall was built during the Ming Dynasty in Beijing and transported to the top of Tianzhu Peak. The entire hall is built out of copper and gilded in gold. The Golden Palace has an amazing view of the surrounding Wudang mountains.
