A Daoist Temple. In the third century Daoist worshippers began to call their temples jing or “peaceful houses.” PHOTO BY JOAN LEBOLD COHEN.

Daoist Temples have been found throughout China since 25 CE. They provide a place for spiritual improvement and training, as well as a place to take part in Daoist religious activities. Only a handful of Daoist temples remain as cultural heritage sites for Daoists and tourists alike.
