Of the many famous mountains and temples, the most famous is Wulei Temple, east of Du Lake and south of Mount Xiangwang of Wulei Mountains. With a history of more than 1,700 years, the temple is known as the cradle of Buddhism in Zhejiang Province and the "Most Ancient Temple of East Zhejiang".
In 888 AD of the Tang Dynasty, the temple, then called "Linsan Zen Temple", was already developing into a full-fledged scale. In 1008 of the North Song Dynasty, the then emperor Zhengzong vouchsafed to give it the name Wulei Pu Du Temple. Between 1043 and 1424 in the Ming, it was renamed Wulei Buddha Temple. Under the Buddhist Monk Zhihuan, the sixth-generation master of the Yunmen Buddhist Sect and abbot of the place, the temple gained a loud reputation in East Zhejiang. In 1645 of the Qing Dynasty, Hongjue, emcee of the Tiantong Temple, moved here, who attracted a lot of Buddhist monks to the temple. This turned the temple into a temple of the Linjizong Buddhist Sect. From 1625 to 1672 in the Qing Dynasty, the temple had more than 200 halls and rooms and developed into a famous temple with unparalleled prosperity.
West of the temple is the graveyard of the tombs of the eminent monks and abbots of the temple including those of Master Bingrui, Master Yuexi, Master Na Luoyan, and Master Dixian. At the place there is a pagoda, where the monk's ashes are preserved.
