The temple remains the architectural styles of the Song and Yuan Dynasty. On the dome of the main hall is a round opening through which moonlight penetrates to the Buddha image, hence the saying “Moon reflection on the Buddha’s navel” on the night of Mid-autumn after a cycle of 60 years. “The Huayan statues of the three sages” carved in wood in the back hall are works of the Song Dynasty.
