Fahai Si Temple and Murals
The art in the temple was funded by a wealthy eunuch who gathered artists from the Imperial court to produce stunning murals and statues. The statues did not survive the Cultural Revolution but the Red Guards failed to notice the exquisite Buddhist murals in the main hall. Over 560 years old, the murals are gorgeous and the temple guide, who speaks fluent English gives a fascinating tour of these rare works of art.

Tianyi Tomb
The tomb was built in 1605 for the favorite eunuch of Ming Emperor Wanli. During this period, the Imperial City housed nearly 20,000 eunuchs! The eunuch graveyard, in a rather unusual shape, contains a spiritway, an underground tomb complex and memorial steeles.
The exhibition may leave you knowing more about eunuchs and castration than you might ever have wanted.
