This ancient towering ginkgo tree is located within the walls of the Gu Guanyin Buddhist Temple in the Zhongnan Mountains in China. The temple was built 1,400 years ago during the Tang Dynasty, and it’s said this beautiful ginkgo tree was planted by emperor Taizong himself.
Every autumn the green leaves on the 1,400-year-old tree turn bright yellow and fall into a golden heap on the temple grounds, drawing tourists from the surrounding area.
