Shifo Temple was built in Liao dynasty. It was called Jingju courtyard at the first place. The temple had a very magnificent size. The main hall with carved beams and painted walls was very spectacular. People from different places come to the temple to pray.

But after hundreds of years, the temple barely left anything. Then the local government reached out to the temple with their biggest support. The rebuilding of the temple was started in 1992. After the rebuilding, Shifo Temple will be much more magnificent than ever.
