This majestic tree is a testament to the beauty of nature and thoughtful gardening. For 1,400 years, this gingko has shaded the Guanyin Zen Temple in the Zhongnan mountains of China. Legend holds that Emperor Li Shimin, a Tang dynasty emperor, planted it for the temple, which was built in 628 A.D.
Every year, the gingko tree drops its leaves in a cascade of vibrant yellow. This attracts tourists from far away who travel to see this wonder. You can see more photos of it here.
