Escorted Rail Tours to Fengdu Ghost City

Built in the foothills of Mount Ming on the banks of the River Yangtze, Fengdu Ghost City is an important collection of temples and monuments which are sacred to three religious orders - Confucianism, Taoism and Buddhism.

The site has 2,000 years of history and earned its name during the Eastern Han Dynasty, when two officials from the Imperial Court came to Mount Ming to learn and practice Taoist teachings. Through self-cultivation they became immortal and their names (Yin and Wang)were combined to Yinwang, which means "King of Hell" in Chinese.

The legend of Yinwang was confirmed under the later Tang Dynasty, who built an expansive temple on Mount Ming depicting the horrors of life in hell, with implements of torture and demonic images, reflecting the belief that good people will be treated well in the afterlife and evil people will be condemned to hell.
