The wonderous rock carvings of Buddha and other deities are superb and caused me to linger a while. Very contemplative interpretation of Buddha made we look and return and return and return for further eye treats. Carvings well-imprinted on my brain.

Nice stone sculptures near the base of the peak Just opposite the entrance of Linying Temple. The peak has no view but a bunch of stones. No worth going up unless you wanted a hike.

shouldnt be a problem because I dont see any security around the vicinity. There are alot of nice landscapes around. But I think we should be respectful and not fly the drones within the temples.
