Baoguosi Culture Market 报国寺文化市场

“Baoguosi” means Baoguo Temple ( Serving the country Temple ). It was first constructed in the Liao Dynasty (916-1125) in the southern part of downtown Beijing. Baoguo Si was a Buddhist temple. During the Ming Dynasty, it was used to hold a member of the royal family. By the early Qing dynasty, the temple had already been turned into a popular bazaar for books and flowers. So Baoguosi Temple is more like antique marketplace than a temple. But it still keeps the appearance of a temple. It has three halls. Two of the three halls as well as the buildings circling the temple wall are used either as warehouses or showrooms. Now it has been expanded to include an antique market(also known as Baoguosi Collection Market or Baoguosi Culture Market), a souvenirs and gifts market, coin markets and a stamp collection market.Traders there also sell miscellaneous items as jade, coins, Buddha statues, old books, calligraphy works, paintings and many more!
