The Temple of the Recumbent Buddha (卧佛寺) is on Yunya mountain where ancient trees tower to the sky, 15 km north from Baoshan city.

Built in a cave of Yunya Mountain, it is also named Yunya Temple of the Recumbent Buddha and is one of Baoshan’s eight famous scenic spots as well as one of the oldest temples in western Yunnan. The hall of the temple is a stone cave. A 9-meter-length recumbent Buddha is built with stones on a 1.3-meter-height stone platform. In 1988, Burmese Buddhists of Chinese origin presented a white marble statue similar to the recumbent Buddha, which is 6 meters in length and 9 tons in weight and becomes the top jade Buddha in China.
