Famous ancient Ginkgo tree, Guanyin Temple, Xi'an

1,400-year-old Ginkgo tree on the grounds of the Guanyin Temple in Luohandong village in the city of  Xi'an, Shaanxi Province, China.
This ancient Ginkgo tree is thought to be planted for Emperor Li Shimin, founding father of the Tang Dynasty, ruling from 629 to 649.
It has become a tourist attraction because of its many golden leaves. The video also gives an impression of a visit to the temple.

Bus: Take the No. 916 bus in Xi’an, get off at Nanshicun Station, go straight to Sanchakou for about 10 minutes (walking),  “Guanyin Temple” is on the left.
