The Phoenix Mountain Temple, in the Bao’an District of Shenzhen, China, dates to the 1200s.  The temple is dedicated to Guanyin, the Goddess of Mercy. She was orginally a Taoist deity but was adopted by the Buddhists when they spread their message to China during the 4th and 5th century.

The Temple and mountain-top hiking trails feature a spectacular view of the surrounding area.
