In the morning, we will drive from Taiping Lake to Jiuhua Mountain for 2 hours. Jiuhua Mountain located in Qingyang County of the Anhui Province is one of top 4 Buddhist Mountains in China. The gross area of Mount Jiuhua reaches 120 square kilometers, while the protection area reaches 114 square kilometers, that’s why it is renowned for its rich landscape and ancient temples with long history. The first to practice religion on Mount Jiuhua was Taoism, which flourished most during Tang dynasty. It was also at this time that Buddhist activities began to take place here, making Mt. Jiuhua a sacred mountain where Taoism and Buddhism coexist. By the Song dynasty, Buddhism was the dominant religion on the mountain. A mass of ancient temples, pagodas, historical relics are well preserved from the foot to Tiantai Peak including 78 Buddhist temples, over 1500 Buddhist statues, etc., which makes it an ideal place for Buddhist pilgrimage.
