A couple of hours south of Yinchuan is the city of Zhongwei and its amazing Buddhist temple Gao Miao Si. Entering the courtyard any stresses you may have will immediately fall away, replaced instead by calm and wonder at such beauty.
The temple is symmetrical and is layered upwards until a steep set of stone steps lead you high up into the final pavilion.
At ground level the temple reveals a strange secret. During the Cultural Revolution an underground bomb shelter was constructed though was then converted to display the perils that await if you end up going to Hell. Definitely one of the more bizarre things I’ve encountered so far.
