What to see?

Xiangshan.jpgXiangshan Mountain is famous for Xiangshan Temple. Xiangshan Temple is located at Xiangshan Mountain in Liulin Town, Yaoxian County of Tongchuan City. About 45 km away from downtown Tongchuan, the temple is not only one of the three great temples in Shaanxi Province but  also one of the earliest Buddhist sanctuaries in China. 

The Xiangshan Temple started to build from 351 AD—384 AD during the period of the former Qin State. Ever since then, the temple has lasted for more than 1,600 years.  The world-famous  Traveling amid Mountains and Streams by Fan Kuan, No. 1 “Masterpiece” painting  of the Song Dynasty, was originated from this place.

According  to legend, Princess Miaoshan cultivated her moral characters and became a Buddha  in this temple (i.e. thousand-arm and thousand-eye Guan Yin). On the mountains  are built Temple of Baique, Dragon Spring Temple, Holy Berry Courtyard, Cave of  Strange Peaks, Zhundi Monastery, Yongshan Hall, Yunya Temple and other such  Buddhist architectural clusters, thus called “the Great Eight Jungles.”
