Built in 495 A.D., Legend has it that Bodhi Dharma came to the temple to teach the doctrines of Zen. In the early years of the Tang Dynasty ( 618-907), thirteen monks of the Temple helped Li Shimin, who later became Emperor Taizong. The Temple was therefore highly commended by the rulers of the Tang Dynasty and was given the title "Number One Temple under Heaven".

Luoyang Museum of Ancient Tombs

Luoyang has been known as the "Capital of nine Dynasty". Mangshan in the northern suburb is the burial ground. As the saying goes, "All over Mangshan are scattered the tombs of the Luoyang people." Since the founding of New China, more than 10,000 tombs have been unearthed. These furnish the basis on which the Luoyang Museum of Ancient Tombs has been built.
