  • Building Information

    The offering hall is the second building on axis, and it is located directly north of the entry gateway. The building is square in plan with a single doorway in all four directions. It has a hip-gable (xieshan 歇山) roof which likely dates to the Qing dynasty restoration of the site (Liu et al. 2015, vol. 7, 1). 1
