Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Youguo Temple is a Buddhist monastery complex located northeast of Kaifeng, in Henan province, China. It was built by the Song Dynasty (960–1279 CE). The design features a pagoda towering in the center of the complex, a style that flourished in Chinese Buddhist temple architecture through the 11th century. The original temple was magnificent in scale with 280 halls and 24 monasteries. Kaifeng was the capital city of the Northern Song, and the temple was an important place that the emperors of the Northern Song Dynasty visited often. The imperial examination center was located at the temple and students from all over the empire came to take the exam. The temple's original pagoda was a mammoth octagonal wooden tower thirteen storeys. The eminent architect Yu Hao designed and engineered it. In 1044, it was hit by lightning and burned to the ground.
