The Great Shangqing Palace was the primary place of worship for a popular Taoist sect in China.

Located in southeast China, the temple was built during the Song Dynasty (960-1279), and burned to the ground in 1930. For many years the temple’s exact location was unknown. It’s the largest excavation ever conducted for a Chinese Taoist site. Pottery and other ancient artwork were also uncovered during the excavation. Archaeologists plan to piece together exactly when the temple was constructed and the cultural climate in which it was built.
