Yuxu Palace

Yuxu Palace was built in 1413, originally one of the largest buildings in Wudang with its 2,000 rooms, until it was destroyed in 1745. The remains of the palace include two pavilions housing stone tablets positioned upon stone tortoises, each of which weighs over several hundred tons. In recent years the Yuxu Palace has scene great rennovations and refurbishments while at the same time still retaining much of its original structure.

Training is held in the Yuxu Palace everyday. If the weather does not permit outside training, there are two large newly rennovated training halls at the academy where classes are also held. The academy also has a meditation hall for sudents.
