There is much precious architectural heritage have been preserved, and during the most prosperous period of the Tang Dynasty, there are only two wooden structures of the Tang Dynasty that have been preserved. They are the Main Hall of Nanchan Temple and the Main Hall of Foguang Temple in Wutai Mountain, Shanxi Province, China. This paper is based on the Main Hall of Nanchan Temple, which was established more than 1,200 years ago, as the research object. By referring to the restoration report in 19801, the 1/10 scale large wooden structure model of the Main Hall of Nanchan Temple was made for the first time; the Main Hall of Nanchan Temple drawings and 3D renderings was systematically drawn.
