Taibo Temple

Taibo Temple, also called Zhide Temple or Rangwang Temple, is located by the side of Bodu River, Meicun Town, Wuxi. It was built in memory of Taibo (the eldest son of Emperor Zhou). He established Gouwu Empire and built Taibo city which became the source of Wu Culture. In 154 A.D. of the Eastern Han Dynasty, Mi Bao, chief of Wu prefecture, built a temple for Taibo on the site of his former residence according to imperial order. After several renovations in later dynasties, the existing Taibo Temple is a set of buildings of Ming and Qing Dynasty Style. In 1983, a statue was built for Taibo measuring 4.5 meters in height. In 1987, Lu Dingyi and Zhao Puchu wrote two tablets for the temple respectively to show respect to his virtue. Later, a decorated archway was set up beside it, and Taibo Park is now under planning.
