The main hall of Donglin temple, formerly known as Guanyin hall, was built in 1308. In the second year of emperor Qing's reign (1313), Yuanzhi monk of Xilin Temple came to open the mountain and changed his name to Donglin temple. The first year of Zhizheng (1341) was destroyed by the war. At the beginning of Ming Dynasty, the monks were rebuilt and then destroyed due to their disrepair. During the Qianlong period of the Qing Dynasty, Chen Keji and others rebuilt, and in the fifth year of Daoguang (1825), the main hall was destroyed by fire. In the ninth year of Daoguang (1829), monk nianhuai was rebuilt.
Chinese Name: Donglin Temple main hall was founded in the first year of the year of Yuanzhi. The original name is Guanyin hall, with a building area of 351 square meters
In May 1998, Shanghai Municipal Commission of cultural relics paid for the renovation, and the overall ceiling of the main hall was raised 60 cm, which was completed in December of the same year.
