Located 2km west of Tianchi Lake, different from the eastern one, the West Minor Tianchi Lake is said the footbath place for Queen Mother of the West.

Sitting in a 4000m2 platform, facing the Tianchi Lake, the serene temple is surrounded by green pines in three directions, leaving its front space vacant.
