The Giant Buddha Temple is located in the middle part of the Hexi Corridor of the Gansu Province, and is an important place on the ancient Silk Road, 5 kilometers from west of Shandan county. Formerly known as the Soil Buddhist Temple, this great monument covering 10,000m², was built in the Northern Wei Dynasty (AD 425) around 1600 years ago. Construction works to rectify the temple were carried out in the 1990s, including the main body of the temple, the new temple square, and bordering landscapes. Standing 39 meters in height, the body of the main hall within the temple has seven layers beneath its entire wooden structure with a glazed tile ceiling. The Buddha itself is seated 35 meters high, and the Buddha’s hands, feet, chest and face are made out of gold leaf.Spring and summer are very popular times to view the Giant Buddha Temple as this marks the Grand Temple Fair in Shandan. The scenic area is based on the ecological and cultural resources such as water features, wetlands, wild water life, pastoral scenery, and a remote garden. These features enlighten the rich history of Buddhism culture and the excellent ecological environment.The Giant Buddha Temple was named the one of the nation’s first harmonic temples. In January 2013, the temple qualified to be a national AAAA-level scenic spot.
