Situated in Guanlin Town in Longmen District, Luoyang City, it is a national AAAA tourism zone, and one of the three major temples to Guan Yu(?-200l, a renowned ancient classical architectural complex integrating the graveyard, temple and forest in China. The temple got its name because Guan Yu’s head was buried here. The Qianqiujian Tower in the square is a place for people to recall the history through literary and artistic activities. The two stone lions standing by the front gate were carved in the Ming Dynasty, symbolizing power and inviolable dignity. The gate with 81 golden nails displays the high position of the temple and the posthumous honor of General Guan Yu. The iron lions on both sides of the Rite Gate weighing over 1,500kg were cast some 400years ago, and still solemnly guard the gate today. A horizontal board inscribed with four Chinese characters meaning “well Known All over the Country” written by Empress Dowager Cixi is hung above the Rite Gate. A paved path flanked by stone lions that links the Rite Gate with the Praying Hall is peculiar to the Guanlin temple. A total of 104 stone lions on the top of the columns along the path are of a great variety of shapes and postures that none resembles another, presenting the highest stone- carving skils of the Central Plain in the Qianlong reign(1736-1795) of the Qing Dynasty.
