Taiyuan is a sensational city.
I wanted a break from Temples and Monasteries, so this seemed a good option.
Originally this temple was to remember Tang Shuyu, a founder of the Jin State during the Spring Autumn Period that's why it is called "Jinci".
The area itself is not large but the towers are worth seeing close up and see what they the first one which is open is like inside.
They are not far from each other.
The place where the Buddha stands actually sits is surrounded by green hills.
