Mt. Holy Lotus is considered as the first strange mountain of Beijing due to the holy water and holy rice as well as the miracle geological landscape. There are 28 heavenly ladders, temples in the south and north, lying Buddha and others. Flat Peach Palace is the representative buildings as a famous Taoist temple. In the west of Flat Peach Palace, a vertical cliff as a half peak and four small peaks on the both sides form a Lotus Holy Seat (Shenglian Baozuo). It is because of the special view that the mountain is named Mt. Holy Lotus. And on the waist of the cliff, the 4-meter (about 13 ft) statue of a goddess is well preserved.
Qinglong Lake, originally Chongqing reservoir, was developed to a resort in 1995. Covering 4.94 square kilometers (about 1.9 sq mi), it has very broad waters.
