My pictures of the beautiful Purple Cloud Temple (Zǐyún Sì 紫雲寺), a Daoist temple, that is situated on the Famous Wudang Mountain. The purple cloud temple was originally built in 1413. It has many great halls, including the Dragon and Tiger Hall, the Purple Sky Hall, the East Hall, the West Hall, the Parent Hall and the Prince Cliff. The Purple Cloud Temple houses the Green Dragon Crescent Blade, which is the famous weapon of Guan Yu, the patron saint of martial artists. We had the opportunity to practice Tai Chi in the courtyard early one morning.
