At the southern foot of Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, 13 kilometers (nine miles) northwest of the Old Town is a small lamasery named Yufeng Temple. The temple is also worth only a short stop as there isn't much to see here. One point to note though is that no matter where I go in Yunnan province, it seems that the flowers bloom beautifully.
The Jade Peak Temple (or Yufeng Temple) parallels with Fuguo Temple, Puji Temple, Wenfeng Temple and Zhiyun Temple as the "Five Lamaseries of suburban Lijiang". Constructed in 1700 during the Qing Dynasty in a mixed architectural style of Han, Bai and Tibetan, Jade Peak Temple comprised as many as nine courtyards at its maximum area, but only the main hall and two courtyards exist today. Inside the temple plant several famous and precious flowers and trees (e.g. camellia, oriental cherry, wild rose, Magnolia delavayi), with evergreen pines and cypresses, crystal spring and pool dotting around the temple.
From historical meaning, Yufeng Temple is a historical witness of the peaceful coexistence and syncretism of multinational cultures and religions, and still plays a very important role in acculturation of Naxi Ethnic Group.
Located at the south foot of the snow mountain which is15 kilometers north of Lijiang ancient City, ogether with the Beiyue Temple and the Beisha Mural, Jade Peak Temple has become an important part of Lijiang tourist destinations.
