Wanna visit? China's ancient temple hanging over cliffside to reopen after rock damage.

The Hanging Temple in Hunyuan County, Shanxi Province, was closed in October, when the rock fell through its roof. It will reopen in time for the May Day holiday.

Guo Lingxia, deputy director of the temple's administration team, said workers had reinforced a wall designed to protect the building against falling rocks, and repaired and revamped the roof.

Anticipating a tourist rush during the coming three-day holiday, the administrators have organized a thorough clean of the temple's 400 halls and rooms, and increased parking.
