    The Temple of Lord Bao and Tomb of Lord Bao 0 Photos in album

Ancestral Temple of Lord Bao (Bao Zheng) is located in the Hefei's Bao River Park, a river named after him.

It is the ancestral temple to honor the well-noted upright official of the Song Dynasty.

Bao Zheng (999-1062), a native of Hefei, was an honest official of the Earlier Song Dynasty (960-1127). He was reputed to be free of corruption and principled all through his official life, and has been always on the lips of the people for centuries.

The temple currently houses some valuable historic relics, including Lord Bao's figure in stone cut in the Qing Dynasty, Lord Bao's Genealogical Tree, Lord Bao's Family Regulations and Lord Bao's writing and painting.

In Lord Bao's Family Regulations, there is a sermon: "Anyone of my offspring who commits corruptions should be excluded from the kindred, and should not be buried with the familial tombs. He who doesn't follow my sermon is not my offspring."

Opposite the temple is the tomb Garden of Lord Bao with a solemn surrounding, where the osseous remains of Lord Bao were buried. The architectural style of the tomb garden is plain and somber. It is among luxuriant woods and green plants.

Both the Ancestral Temple of Lord Bao and Tomb Garden of Lord Bao, built in commemoration of Lord Bao, comprise the Lord Bao Memorial Park.
