Laoshan lies in the southwest of Shandong Peninsula, adjoining East
Sea of China. The mountains, stones, pine trees and water falls
are very strange in comparison with the common ones. Xu Fu once
past the place on his errand of seeking Golden Elixir Pill for Emperor
Qin Shihuang. Now there is a island called Xu Fudao in the sea before
the Taiqing Temple.
Taiqing Temple was constructed by Zhang Lianfu, the governor of
Rei Zhou in A.D.140. Later in 904, Zhang Zhexuan and Zhang Daochong
came to the place and renovate the temples. Famous Taiji master
Zhang Shanfeng came to the place two times and practiced his art
in the Shanfeng Tower near the sea. Famous Taoist Qiu Chuji, Liu
Changshen, together with their five colleagues, once lived in the
place and created Quanzhen school of Taoism.
