Buddhism Lotus Kingdom Coming Alive


Jiuhua Mountain is dotted with temples and misted with the smoke of burning joss sticks. It is a sacred place for Buddhist pilgrims. Noted for its beautiful scenery and favorable climate, the mountain is an ideal summer resort. With a unique appeal, Jiuhua has been established as one of the four most important Buddhist mountains in China and is known in and out of the country as "the most worshipped sacred place" and "the first mountain in Southeast China".

Jiuhua covers an area of 100 square kilometers southwest of Qingyang county in the south of Anhui Province. There are 99 peaks and 18 scenic spots. The peaks stand sheer against each other, yet they are all exquisitely beautiful. In the height of prosperity, the temples numbered 150 and the monks and nuns more than 3, 000.

When great poet Li Bai was invited to the mountain, he was overwhelmed by the scene of nine peaks that look like lotus blooms from heaven. Out of admiration he composed the lines:"Two forces preserve between the World and the Heaven.
