||This article needs additional citations for verification. (February 2011)|
The Purple Cloud Temple, standing on Zhanqifeng Peak, is a temple in Wudangshan. Built in 1413, it consists of several halls, including the Dragon and Tiger Hall, the Purple Sky Hall, the East Hall, the West Hall, the Parent Hall and the Prince Cliff.
The Purple Sky Hall is enshrined with statues of Zhen Wu at different stages of his life. Statues of Zhen Wu's parents rest in the Parent Hall. On the left side is the Chinese deity Guan Yin, and on the right is the Shouzi Mother to whom couples traditionally pray for sons. The hall also houses cultural relics, some of which date back as far as the 7th century. The Green Dragon Crescent Blade purportedly[by whom?] from the legends of Guan Yu is also displayed.
