About Location:

Zajia lab project space___Hong'En Taoist Temple:

Hong'En Taoist Temple is located in Beijing at the back of Bell Tower, close to the city central axes. During the Yuan dynasty it was called "Thousand Buddhas Temple", but its name was changed into "Temple of Peace and Quiet" during the Qing Dinasty.  During the reign of Emperor Tongzhi (1862-1875),Taoist priest Liu Chengyin renovated the temple building and renamed it "Hong'En Taoist Temple" (Taoist Temple of the Vast Kindness) and also erected a commemorative stele in which he expressed the wish that "people visiting the temple shall look upon the God of Kindness with deep respect and devotion and shall always protect and sustain the temple". During the Cultural Revolution, the temple was used as a factory of spare parts. Nowadays, between the front hall and the main audience hall of the temple there are a supermarket, a grocery market and a souvenir shop.
