Chaosheng Nunnery (Exceeding Wonder Nunnery) with a history of one thousand years
Chaosheng Nunnery (Exceeding Wonder Nunnery) is a must-see spot for visitors, as it demonstrates the spirit of Yunfeng Mountain. As one of the most well-known ancient nunnery in Beijing, Chaosheng Nunnery was first built in Tang Dynasty more than 1000 years ago. Later, it was rebuilt during Jin, Ming and Qing Dynasties. However, majority of the construction was demolished by Japanese during their invasion into China in 1943. The present architecture that you can see nowadays is in fact the one which reconstructed in 1998 by a tourism company from Taiwan.

Traditional architectural style
Chaosheng Nunnery (Exceeding Wonder Nunnery) was reconstructed by using the ancient method of construction which imitated the style of Song Dynasty on the basis of its remaining gates, girders and poles. Thus, the flavor of ancient times is absorbed in the reconstruction so that even the ornaments can tell visitors of the one-thousand-year history.

Tranquility of the mind
The layout of the nunnery is quite orderly, with two courtyards— the front and the back. Within the nunnery, tourists can buy exquisite cards for prayer, write their wishes on, and pray with piety to the Buddha. The Bodhisattva at the side of the water lily pool is holding aquarius bottle to welcome visitors. The flowers of aged pagoda trees disperse all over the yard in summer as if the visitors have gone into a fairyland in their dreams.

Special tips:
The annual average temperature is around 7-9 degrees centigrade. In summer, it is very cool in summer on the mountain top. For Chao Sheng (Exceeding Wonder) Nunnery, the temperature in summer is 2-3 degrees lower than that at the mountain feet.
