In the third year of Shenlong Period of Emperor Zhong of the Tang Dynasty, Empress Wu Zetian (624-705) issued a royal order to rename it as State Grace Temple to award Sixth Patriarch Huineng's achievement in Buddhism promotion. As one of the three most important temples in Zen's Southern Sect, its history can be traced back to more than 1,300years ago. The Sixth Patriarch Master Monk Huineng was born in Xialu Village, Xinzhou County (the present Xinxing County) in the Tang Dynasty.
