Huiyin Gaoli Temple
Formerly known as Huiyin Buddhist Temple, Huiyin Gaoli Temple is situated between Chishan Port and Yucen Hill on the west side of West Lake in Hangzhou. Founded in 927, the temple derives its name from a Korean prince, who became a patron to the temple after studying Buddhism there in 1085. The temple now houses the world's tallest revolving sutra repository, 13.6 meters high and meticulously crafted from Phoebe Zhennan wood, a valuable tree that in ancient times only royal families could afford to use, and adorned with golden leaf.
