Clouds Gathering Temple is one of the famous temple in Summer Palace. The temple comes with beautiful facade with small Buddha statues, and green and yellow tiles. An ancient mystery giant Buddha displayed inside the Temple is the purpose for the tourists to pray for good fortunes and health.

The signboard was written as:

" Originally built during the reign of Emperor Qianlong, the main hall has a square structure, which was named the "True Source of Fragrant Sea". It was one of the few wooded structures to survive the fire set by the Anglo-French Allied Forces. The original bronze statue of Buddha Pilu, which existed when the Summer Palace was still the Garden of Clear Ripples, stands inside the hall."

In Chinese: 云会寺 (Yun Hui Si)
