Tanzhi Temple was built in the Western Jin Dynasty, earlier than Beijing. I don't think it is necessarily related to the construction of Beijing City. The "first Tanzhi Temple, then Beijing City" should be described from the perspective of time series. The Daxiong Palace of Tanzhi Temple is a building with a double eaves and a top of the palace. The format is imperial, but no yellow glazed tiles are used. There are two gold chains on the top of Daxiong Palace. They were given by Emperor Qianlong to lock the dragon in Longtan. The dragon brought rain to Beijing and could not let it go. Behind Daxiong Pavilion is Qianlu Pavilion. There is a super-thick ginkgo tree in front and left of the pavilion. The bright yellow leaves are reflected in the blue sky background under the transmission of sunlight, just like a magnificent palette of nature.

Princess Dai Miaoyan's retreat is a memorable place. Fourthly, rare cultural relics, such as stone fish, brick worship, bronze pot and the plaques of emperors of all dynasties, deserve careful taste. The historic sites in the outskirts of Beijing should be pushed here as the first place.
A blooming lilac tree at the entrance of the side courtyard of Tanzhi Temple led us into the courtyard door. In a moment, we were intoxicated by the fine fragments of flowers dotted with gardens among the branches. In the courtyard, a tree of lilacs, full of clusters of small flowers, moving in the sunshine, thick and dense spread into the sea of lilacs, like spring, carried in the hands. Cloves blossom, fine as Ding, purple and white, all clusters. White, white as smoke, purple, purple as romantic as dream. Quietly, in the illusion and vagueness, it emits a faint fragrance, which is fascinating and affectionate.
Tanzhi Temple is named for a large number of stubble trees in front of the temple. The stubble tree, also known as yellow mulberry, is a small tree of Moraceae. It blooms in summer, and its roots, stems, leaves, barks and fruits can be used as medicine. The stubble tree is hard, fine-grained, and its branches are elastic. The ancients used it as the back of the bow. Generally, it grows in the south, but rarely in the north, so the trees in Tanzhi Temple are very precious. Ancient Tanzhi Temple was surrounded by mountains covered with Zhe trees. There are thousands of chapters about Zhe trees in Tanzhi Temple. Later legend has it that Tan bark can cure women's infertility and bark is stripped off. These trees are the only ones left with fruitful results. There are two pines in front of Tanzhi Temple, Panlong Pine and Wolong Pine. These two pines are not very tall, but they grow very luxuriantly horizontally.
