Three Star Temple

Golden Shuttle Island, Dali

The Three Star Temple is located on Golden Shuttle Island (Jin Suo Dao), a small island in Ear Lake (Er Hai) east of Dali. Jinsuodao, formerly a summer resort of the royal family of Nanzhao Kingdom, is now a Bai fishing village. The temple is dedicated to the local god of the village.

The island is named "golden shuttle" because its shape is thought to resemble the shuttle of a loom.
