If you thought your local autumn leaves were stunning, just wait until you see the golden leaves on this ancient Chinese gingko tree.
This tree is located within the walls of the Gu Guanyin Buddhist Temple in the Zhongnan Mountains in China. Every fall, the leaves on the 1,400-year-old tree turn bright yellow, creating an amazing contrast to the surrounding greenery and rooftops. Then, the leaves fall onto the ground to create a visually stunning landscape around the tree.
Each year, thousands of tourists travel to China to see this amazing gift of the changing seasons. You can see it for yourself in the photos below.
