We were lucky enough to have a tour of the Fuxi temple without any other people present, this meant we were really able to understand and feel the peace and tranquility that comes with such a place of ancient history and prominence. A must see if you are in Tianshui, they also have a museum at the back which had... More

This place has quite an important significance for a lot of people in China, its one of the oldest and the very first temple to Fuxi. We were lucky enough to have gotten here on a Sunday morning just after 8 am when there were hundred of devoted people celebrating Fuxi with dances, music and a marching caravan of men,... More

I am not a believer of Taoism but this temple was a highlight in my Silk Road trip! Our tour guide is a well-read girl and she explained the basic stuff about Yin and Yang. The signs of Bagua (八卦,Eight Diagrams) are actually good advice for our lives: Be patient in wait and be modest at success, and how people... More

Fu Xi Temple is a must if you are visiting Tianshui. Fu Xi was one of the three emperors in ancient China and the ancestor of the Chinese. according to legend, he married his sister Nuwa after a major flood to save mankind! It would not have been acceptable by today's standard and morale! However, here as we go thru'... More

Another temple,yawn.. There was also a museum with the usual old vases etc. What made the visit worthwhile was seeing the local population interacting with each other outside the temple grounds. Men and women were playing games and gambling, while others gathered to play music with standers by joining in to sing. It was wonderful to watch the locals enjoying... More

I was not aware of this important site, until my latest trip to China. Fuxi is supposed to the father of the Chinese people, and it is from him, the Chinese people are descended. The Chinese version of the story is, after the great flood, only 2 people were left alive, ie Fuxi and Nuwa, his sister. Nuwa heard from... More

Fuxi (Foo She) is a central character in Chinese cultural history. He is said to have invented writing, the catching of fish by nets, the trapping of animals, and the Ba Gua, the eight fundamental principles of reality. He comes from Tianshui, so this is one of the few, and the most important, shrines of Fuxi. The temple is not... More
