In May 2012, members of HIVE and various UK instructors traveled to Shanghai, China to participate in an Appalachian Symposium as part of an exchange with Shanghai University. One ancient Chinese structure that was visited by these travelers in China was the Jing'an Temple. Jing'an Temple was built in 247 A.D., and was famous for its "Eight Sights." "Bubbling Well," one of the Eight Sights, was known as "The Six Springs on Earth." A copper bell made in Ming Dynasty is still in the temple today. The Jing'an Temple has a collection of bronze, calligraphy, paintings, and Buddha sculptures from various dynasties up to Western Zhou era. Photos by: Dana Rogers
