The beautiful interiors of this temple, built for a 18th Century Manchurian princess, including chairs and tables, a bed, mirrors, cushions and a bath, all made from the finest clay, persimmon and rosewood were carefully preserved until 1940 when they were pillaged. The temple’s architecture and the remains of the furniture and accessories have been carefully preserved and are on display. The princess was found buried in the garden in a white rosewood coffin.
