The Taoism Religion of China

The Taoism religion of China is thought to be practised by around 4 hundred million Chinese.

Although Taoism was suppressed during the Cultural Revolution under Mao, there has been a gradual revival in more recent times.

The Taoism pictures in this slide-show give a glimpse into a typical temple. Note that there are male and female priests in Taoism. In 2009, a woman was enthroned as the principal abbott at Changchun Temple in Wuhan, capital of Hubei province. Known in Mandarin as a fangzhang, this is the highest position anyone, male or female, can hold in a Taoist temple.
