Background
Mt. Jiuhua in the southwest of Qingyang County, Anhui Province, is one of the four mountains famous for the Buddhist religion in China and is known as the place where Ksitigarbha performed Buddhist rites to save the souls of the dead, According to Buddhist sutra, Ksitigarbha vowed to save all the souls of the dead before becoming a Buddha .

Mt. Jiuhua boasts of quiet and beautiful landscape, particularly in the peaks, and convenient transportation facilities. It has long been the ideal place for religious followers. In the Han Dynasty (206 B.C.-A.D.220) and Tang Dynasty (618-907), Mt. Jiuhua was once the place for Taoist rites, and Taoism was later merged with and replaced by Buddhism. Mt. Jiuhua becomes the No.1 of the four mountains famous for the Buddhist religion and for its concentrated temples and good preservation of Buddha figures, The well-known temples on the mountain include Tiantai Temple, Ganlu Temple, Huacheng Temple, Hall of the Physical Body, Temple of Longevity and Huiju Temple. All the imposing temples are grand in architecture and exquisite in structure, with upturned eaves and painted pillars.

On Mt£®Jiuhua there are a temperate climate, moist and cool temperature, rich rain fall and distinct four seasons. It is pleasing to both the eye and the mind to enjoy the drizzle in spring, the sea of clouds in summer, the fog in pine woods in autumn, the snow in winter, as well as the first rays of the morning sun and the glow of the setting sun, on the mountain . The high and steep peaks there are like water lilies out of the water when watched in distance and take different shapes when watched nearby. In the woods on the mountain are large number of rare trees, cash plants and rare birds and animals. Da Peng Ting Jing (the roc listens sutra) and Feng Huang Gu Song (Phoenix and ancient pine) are among the very famous scenery.

Apart from the beautiful landscape, Mt£®Jiuhua also boasts temples of unique architectural style and rich cultural relics on Buddhism. It is a good place for sightseeing and vacationing, as well as for watching Buddhist rites and academic study.
