At the foot of Mount Tai surrounded by 2,000-year-old twisted Cyprus trees lies the Dai Temple (known in Chinese as the Daimiao). For centuries, China’s emperors would pass through the temple on their route up the mountain. Built in the Han dynasty, the design of the temple mimics the style of an imperial palace, one of the only existing buildings of this type in China, along with the Forbidden City and the Temple of Confucius in Qufu.
