Bixi at Dai Miao in Tai’an

Dai Miao is an important temple for the Chinese people and the temple that was the starting out point for the emperor’s trips up Taishan, which were for religious purposes. The Bixi (stone tortoises) carry on their backs the documentation for those visits. The ones at Dai Miao are of dramatically varying ages and some are quite ancient and worn.
