Now let me introduce The Golden Lake in brief. The Golden Lake is located in Taining County which is at the southern tip of the Wuyi Mountain. In the summer of the year 1980, the government built Chi Tang hydropower station in Lunan Beach of Jin Xi River.
It has an installed capacity of 10000 kilowatt. After the Jinxi River being blocked up, their forms a man-made lake at the upper reach, which is about 60 kilometers long and has a capacity of 8.7 hundred million cubic meters. Hence this lake was named the golden lake.
Enclosed please find photos of Ganglu Temple. The materials of this temple are all wood without any ferric nail. However, the temple are connected by some special t-shape dougong, which is an unique architecture form in ancient china. Many foreign architects also highly praised it.
It is a pity that the original temple is burnt down by a careless monk in 1960s. This new one is built in 1964 according to the architectural style of the original temple.
The Golden Lake is surrounded by connected mountains and verdant forest. Stone bamboo shoots rise high abruptly, with springs flowing through them.
