Temple of Bliss

Temple of Bliss, aka the Temple of Ultimate Bliss or Jile Temple, is located at the east end of Dazhijie (Dazhi Street), covering an area of 57,000 sq. m. It is known as one of the 4 most important Buddhist temples in northeast China (The other 3 are: Panruo Temple - Changchun, Ci'en Temple - Shengyang and Lengyan Temple - Yingkou). The temple is characterized by its long history, buildings and lay out. It is considered as the model for visitors to understand and appreciate the art of Chinese temple building.

Temple of Bliss was built in 1923 by Master Tanxu, a famous disciple of the Tiantai Buddhist clan. The complex of the temple consists of the Heavenly King’s Hall, the Grand Hall, the Three Bodhisattva Hall, and the Buddhist Book Storage Hall. The main halls are fronted by a Drum Tower and a Bell Tower and other subordinate structures. The most imposing building of the temple is probably the 7-level stupa on the eastern tip of the grounds, a 37m tall stone structure building dotted with caves engraved with Buddhist embossed sculptures. At the bottom of the stupa is a large hall with Buddhist statues.

Every 8th, 18th and 28th of April according to the lunar calendar, Major Buddhist festivals are held in the temple. Massive rites and celebrations are organized, while the temple area is surrounded with bazaars and various folk activities.
