Background
The Qianshan Mountain, located southeast of Anshan, Liaoning Province, is one of the three famous mountains in northeast China. The Terrace of Immortals, the main peak of the mountain, is over 700 meters above sea level. The Qianshan Mountain (meaning "a thousand peaks" in Chinese) got its name from the nearly 1,000 peaks. Some of them look like crouching lions and tigers, some like sleeping elephants and coiled dragons. As early as Sui and Tang Dynasties the mountain was the location for temple, and later became a center of Buddhist and Taoist temples. The forest-clad mountain abounds with scenic spots and historical sites. It is a tourist attraction in east Liaoning Province well known for the "towering peaks, step rocks and ancient temples".
