There are 2 Buddha and 8 Bodhisattva in the temple. Tiandi Buddha,
commonly known as Huanxi Buddha, is a statue of a connected figure
that a man and a woman is hugging, which symbolizes the
co-existence of heaven and the earthly world. In the Tianwan
Palace, Maitreya Buddha, the Four Gods (in Chinese they are called
Tianwang), Weituo are enshrined there.
The pagoda ,with a height about 21 meters, is at the northeast
corner of the temple, which is composed of 3 parts: the pedestal,
tower body, phase rotation. The pedestal is a waist-contracted
square Xumi throne on which designs of passion flowers were carved.
On the two sides of the pedestal and the kettle-model door, stone
pillars stand, which are also carved with design of Yangfu lotus
and Baolian lotus.
On each side of the pedestal, 3 kettle-model doors are formed
between 2 stone pillars. The middle one, which is embedded with
treasure basin and flame pearl, is a bit convex, while the other
two are slightly concave. On the pedestal, there is a 3-layer round
altar throne, on which 13 stories brick-made temple body stands,
with each storey tightens in.
On the top of the temple are precious summit and flagpole.
