Mount Thai and
Imposing Taoist Temples



Mount Thai is located in the middle of Shandong Province, covering an area of 426 square kilometers. The altitude of the  highest peak is 1,524 meters above the sea level. It is generally regarded as the first of the five sacred mountains in China.

The famous Taoist priests Wang Chongyang, his disciple Qiu Chujee, began their unswerving pursuit  of Tao in the temples of  mount Thai(about A.D. 1221). Zhang Zhichun, the disciple of Qiu Chujee, changed his body into brilliant light and filled up the infinite emptiness in one of the temple after 84 years of practice. Many ancient Chinese emperors paid their respect (constructing temple, renovate temple, granting inscribed tablet plaque or attending Taoist festivals) when they came to power. In almost all temples you can behold famous Taoist sculptures, read or hear about  their legendary stories.
