Feilaisi History

There is a legendary story about Feilai Temple. Originally, the temple was to be built in a place two kilometers away from the present site. All the materials had been prepared.

But the night before the project started, the major construction materials, such as the columns, disappeared suddenly. The monk in charge sent people to look for them. When they arrived at the present site, they found that the columns had been put in place according to their specifications, without any posterior beams and columns, as the hall.

People regarded this as the will of the divine. Therefore, they followed the will of the divine and built the temple at the present site. Due to the beams and columns ‘flying’ to the place and putting themselves in place, the temple was named “Feilai Temple”. Today, if you stand in Douwen Village and look across at Feilai Temple, you will notice that the temple does have a tendency to fly.

There is a cold clean spring in front of Feilai Temple, which is said to be good for retaining beauty and longevity. The monk in charge is said to have lived a long life due to his frequent drinking from the spring. As a result, people who climb up the mountain all rush to have a drink of the water, and they even take away several bottles of the spring water with them when they leave.
