Dazhao Temple

Dazhao Temple is the oldest building and the largest temple in Hohhot. It is located in the old part of Hohhot and was built in 1580 during Ming Dynasty. Usually, the locals call it Yinfo Temple (Silver Buddha Temple) because there is a rare silver statue of Sakyamuni (the founder of Buddhism) with 2.5-meter-high.

Splendid statues, delicate frescos, and great collection of Buddhist scriptures, these are the major features of the temple. The central part of the temple is Fo Tang (the hall for worshiping Buddha), where the Silver Buddha lies and it has been already four hundred years.
