During the Northern Song Dynasty, Emperor Song Taizu (Zhao Kuang) asked Tianshouyuan monk Jiye Sanzang and others monks go to Tianzhu for the buddhist relics, Jiye Sanzang and his party brought back a large number of scriptures and Buddha bone relics from India to worship the court; Song Taizong Zhao Guangyi ordered these sacred objects to be practiced on the famous mountains; after he traveled around the famous mountains and rivers of the motherland, he chose to settle down in Yanfuyuan, Emeishan. Because of the intersection of black and white waters in front of Xiangzhong Temple, he made a wish to build a new temple here, To provide for life, the temple was named Qian Niuxin Temple after its completion.

During the Ming Dynasty (1369), the monk Guangji Zen Master of Fengyang Phoenix Mountain Longxing Temple (Zhu Yuanzhang used to be a monk here, later renamed Huangjue Temple) came to Mount Emei and resided here in Tin; according to legend, Guangji and Ming Taizu Zhu Yuanzhang The exchanges were very close. After Zhu Yuanzhang became emperor, Guangji was unwilling to accept Zhu Yuanzhang's edict, so he entered the Emeishan Zen and hid here.

According to the natural scenery embraced by the mountains and rivers here, Zen Master Guangji also saw that the pavilions, terraces, buildings, pavilions and the gurgling water were harmoniously blended. So he changed into the name to "Qingyin Pavilion".

In history, the pavilion caught fire three times, and it is now rebuilt after 1917. Due to the limitation of the terrain, the Qingyin pavilion has only one hall dedicated to the three saints of Huayan. The center is Buddha Shakyamuni, the left is Manjushri, and the right is Samantabhadra. .
