Located in a gorge between two huge mountains, Peak Flown From Afar and North Peak, this hillside temple is enveloped by dense trees, thick mist, and chirm of birds. As a well-known Buddhist temple, it enshrines many Buddhist relics, such as Diamond Sutra and gilded Buddha statues as well as imperial steles. There is a solemn and grand 24.8-meter (81.4-feet) high statue of Sakyamuni sitting on a lotus-seat in the Mahavira Hall.
