A bird’s-eye view of Jinci Temple, there are a large number of small ancestral temples, and the layout is flexible and diverse according to local conditions. The layout of the large-scale ancestral temple is distinct, the structure is clear, the central axis is symmetrical, the winding path leads to the secluded, and the momentum is magnificent. Looking at the scenic spot, it extends vertically and horizontally with the Hall of Our Lady as the center, and highlights the key points. With the Zuo Qinglong, the right white tiger, the former sweat pool, and the rear hills as the main axis, it has created the Shanli Spring and Nanlao Spring, as well as the well-known scenic spots such as Yumarsh and Xuanwu Mountain.

Then it was expanded by leaps and bounds in the period of Emperor Taizong Li Shimin of the Tang Dynasty. The famous inscription of the scenic spot “The Inscription of Jinci” was written by Li Shimin himself during the Zhenguan period of Tang Dynasty.
