Ginkgo trees Baiyan Temple, Jinxing

90 Ancient Ginkgo trees at Baiyan (White Rock) Temple, located in Jinxing Township, Dayi County, Sichuan in China, more than 60 kilometers from Chengdu. 

The Ginkgo trees were planted by monks during the Ming Dynasty (1368 to 1644), possibly even earlier. Most famous is the legendary and millennia old "nine children Ginkgo", meaning that one Ginkgo tree turned into nine Ginkgo trees...

The temple was built under a huge white rock, that’s how it gained its name. It is said to be constructed in the 16th year Eastern Han Dynasty and is the only Tibetan Buddhist temple near Chengdu.
The Ginkgo trees scenery attracts many visitors.
