According to the tablet inscriptions, Dasheng Temple was built under Emperor Zhezong's reign during the Song Dynasty (960-1279), and now has a history of 931 years.

The temple has been long neglected and in disrepair; only frescos featuring themes of folk tales and fairy stories can still be seen.
