Very special area to visit

Have been here twice now and it is truly amazing. Huge quantity of Buddhist temples and arguably the most sacred area in China. You will need a couple of days.

This place is magnificent! Any Buddhist that visit will have a deeper understanding of the path 地藏王菩萨... This is the place where many miracles happened. You have to visit the museum, and walk the trails after taking the cable car. The air is fresh, the temples are simply awesome. Visit 甘露寺,肉身宝殿,and the temple with 五百罗汉.

We were totally enthralled with the Mountain of Nine Lotuses. It is easy to see why Li Bai (701-762) visited in the mountain and was intoxicated with the fascinating scenery of nine lotuses shaped peaks upon green river. He described the landscape in his poem. Mt. Jiuhuashan now boasts ofexquisite architecture and grand structures of temples.

I was in this place last weekend (June 28th). The place is amazing, even though it is not a cheap visit. Everything is paid there. Including the vehicle that took me there, I paid 630 yuans. There are several ways to get there (bus, train, walking). It's worth it to go all the way up, because the view is amazing.... More

It is very beautiful. We walked up the mountain to reach the tian tai. It took us two and a half hours but it is worth it cos along the way there are fantastic scenery . P.s. Please bring your own incense from our own country; do not believe what the people at jiuhuashan say if you don't buy the... More
