Sun­light Rock Tem­ple (Ri Guang Yan Si 日光岩寺)

Sun­light Rock Tem­ple, orig­i­nal­ly named “Lo­tus Nun­nery”, was re­built in the 14th Year of the Wan­li Reign of the Ming Dy­nasty (AD 1586). The main hall, Gen­er­al Funds Hall (Yuan Tong Bao Di­an), is a huge cave carved in­to a rock at the hill’s peak and sup­port­ed by stone columns and cross­pieces, hence the nick­name “One Tile Roof”. In 1936, the em­i­nent Bud­dhist monk, Mas­ter Hong Yi, spent a time of re­treat in a room in the east wing of the Tem­ple. He in­scribed a plaque for his re­treat room, “Sun­light Courtyard”.
