Miaoying Temple, or Baita Temple (White Towers Temple), is located in the north side of Fuchengmen Street in Beijing. It was constructed in 1096 and rebuilt in 1271. It is one of the earliest Tibetan Buddhism temples in Beijing as well as Beijing's oldest famous construction.

The white towers in the Miaoying Temple have been listed as a national protection unit of the point cultural object in 1963.

Now the main constructions in Baita Temple are Shanmen Hall, Bell Tower, Drum Tower, Tianwang Hall, Bai Tower and so on.
