Yuehua Temple, Shaoguan, Guangdong
(July 25, 2012)

(1) In Bill Porter's book Zen Baggage, he says that Yuehua Temple, near the North River, was where visitors to Nanhua Temple would disembark before heading up a tributary to the larger temple. Also, he says, every time Nanhua was restored, this one was, too--until last time, when it was missed. It's just being rebuilt now, in a heavily-industrialized area. No one was around when I found it (with the help of a gouging taxi driver), so I couldn't even enter the grounds.

(2) The "courtyard" (sort of).

(3) The main (and only) hall, as far as I could see.
