Qianshan is the most famous tourist site in north China. It lies in
the east, about 20 kilometers away from Anshan City, and boasts 999
mountains altogether, covering 152 square kilometers. So, it is also
called thousand-lotus-flower mountain.
Qianshan features many beautiful peaks, precipitious cliffs, secluded
valleys, high-situated Taoism and Buddhism temples, grotesque pine
trees in strange shape, exuberant flowers of various kinds, etc.
So, for a very long history it has been given the name of Treasure
Pearl of North China.
from Shui Dynasty, it has been the religion center, and many Buddhists
and Taoists came here to construct many temples, pagodas half way
or at the top of the mountains. It is seldom for both Buddhism and
Taoism temples stationing in one mountain area and left with present
people so much cultural contents to read, understand ans explore.
Taoism the most imposing temple is Infinity Temple who was built
half way up the steep mountains and has very strange layout. Visitors
coming here will sigh at the fine scenery and have the feeling of
walking casually into a fairy land. Many poets left with us much
poem praising the sights and so many poem inscription tablets stand
fully or partly in deep shrub. Emperor-Visited Scenery Zone, Western
Ocean Zone, Great Buddha Zone, Bird-Tweedling Zone and Immortal's
Platform are present spot sites very deserving visting and at least
4 days are necessary to tour them all.
the early period of Qianlong Administration of Qing Dynasty, Liu
Taibin and Wang Taixiang, two disciples of Guo Shouzhen who was
priest of Tiechashan and immortal, came here to practice and nurture
their congenital nature in Luohan Cave. The Qianlong Emperor paid
visit to this mountain several times.
