Introduction:
Zhihua Temple, a Buddhist temple, is one of the most important original building complexes from the Ming dynasty period and one of the only wooden structures and groups of buildings from the Ming dynasty to remain intact in Beijing. It is also striking for its extensive use of black roof tiles. At the temple, a group of musicians regularly performs centuries-old ritual music which has been handed down over 27 generations.
