Mount Hua -- Hua Shan

Mount Hua lies in the south of Hua Xian County, Shan'Xi Province. It belongs to Qin Ling Mount area, and in the east section. Most peaks are very steep and very difficult to climb. The south peak is the highest and at the top of it is a large pond in which there is very clear water never dry all year long. Many people come to pay their respect, even many emperors, such as emperor Tang Gaozhu, Tang Taizhong(Tang Dynasty). And the princess Jinxian, the daughter of emperor Rui Zhong(Tang Dynasty), once came to Mount Hua to pursue Tao. Thus emperor Tang Xuanzhong ordered the construction of Woman-Immortal Temple and Silver Cloud Monastery.

The famous Taoists like Zhong Liquan, Lu Yan, Liu Chao, Wang Chuyi, Hao Datong, Tan Chuduan once lived here. Chen Tuan, one of the founders of Taoism, lived here almost forty years, also, finishing writing many famous Taoism books.
