Lilacs appeal to people, not just for the color of their blossoms but also their elegant, noble appearance and rich aroma. It is at its most prominent in April and May.

Fayuan Temple, which was built in AD 645, has been known for its lilac blossoms since the Ming Dynasty. The flowers set off the red walls, green tiles, carved beams and painted buildings of the ancient temple. Historical figures, such as Lin Zexu, Ji Xiaolan and Gong Zizhen, left their footprints and created poems there, and spring is considered the most beautiful season to visit Fayuan Temple.
