It is one of the most important Buddhist temples and a National Key Buddhist Temple in the Han Chinese Area.
The Baoguo Temple dates from the Ming Dynasty. Besides, the main hall, there are several other halls, such as the Maitreya Hall or the Tripitaka Pavilion.
During the Qing Dynasty, the Kangxi Emperor changed the name of the temple. Above the entrance of the main hall hangs a nameplate of the temple with his handwriting.
A staircase opposite the entrance of the main hall leads to a pavilion with the Shengji bronze bell. The Shengji Bell is 2.3 m high and weighs 12.5 tons. It is said to be the Queen of Bells in Sichuan.
