      Why we suggest this tour itinerary?

      Around 400km to the south of Shanghai, there is a mountain called Tiantai which is named after the constellation Tai and thought as the symbol of this constellation on earth. There is also a mountain area which name is Xianju which means Celestial Being Stay – Legend says immortals took this area as their land for its fairyland like scenery. Guoqing Temple at the foot of Tiantai Mountain is the site where indigenous Chinese Buddhism branched away from Buddhist teachings and doctrine commonly found in India. From there, the Tiantai Sect of Buddhism spread to both Korea and Japan during the Tang Dynasty (618–907 AD). The tall brick Guoqing Pagoda built at the temple in the year 597 AD is still standing, making it one of the oldest surviving brick pagodas in China. 

       

      Tourists will also take the bamboo raft to drift along the wonderland like Yong’an Stream and visit ancient Potan Town to enjoy the carefree, snug, tranquil and serene atmosphere there.

      More Info about the Attractions 

      Tiantai Mountain and Guoqing Temple: 

      With unique geography, tranquil flora comprised of evergreen plants and many historical sites, Tiantai Mountain (Tiantai means "a constellation named Tai in sky") is a famous national scenic area situated in Zhejiang Province, around 380km (4.5 hours ride) to the south of Shanghai. It is well-known for its picturesque scenery and for being the Buddhist Mecca. Guoqing Temple (Guoqing means Pure Nation) at the foot of Tiantai Mountain was built in 598 in the Sui Dynasty,renovated several times in later dynasties. The existing buildings were those rebuilt in 1734. It is the cradle of the Tiantai Sect of Buddhism. Master Zhiyi, who designed the temple, was also the founder of the sect (though, to honor his teachers, he is called the Fourth Patriarch). Before Zhiyi created this systematic teaching, all Buddhism in China was based on Indian models. This, then, was the first truly Chinese system of the Buddha’s teachings. The teaching was carried to Korea and Japan (where it is called “Tendai”) in the Tang Dynasty (618-907). 

       

      This temple is one of the best preserved large temples in China. It covers an area of 19,600 square meters with 14 halls and over 600 rooms in the temple. The architecture is grand and unique. Its main body consists of four vertical axes and such main buildings as Maitreya Buddha Hall, Main Hall, Kwin-yin Hall, Bell Tower, Drum Tower, Abbots Room, Sutra Hall, etc. stand on these axes. The Statue of Sakyamuni in the Main Hall is cast by bronze, and weighs thirteen tons. The fresco Leading People from Earthliness to Buddhism behind the statue of Sakyamuni is drawn delicately, with high artistic value. By left side of the Main Hall, you can enjoy an ancient plum tree in the parterre. It is said that the plum tree, with an age of more than 1,300 years, was planted by the first abbot of this temple in the Sui Dynasty; therefore, it has a popular name: Sui Plum. Maybe it is the oldest extant plum tree in China.

      The tall brick Guoqing Pagodabuilt at the temple in the year 597 AD is still standing, making it one of the oldest surviving brick pagodas in China (after the 40 metres (130 ft) tall Chinese Songyue Pagoda built in 523 AD). 

       

      Shiliang Waterfall is a masterpiece of nature near the temple. A stone beam spans two steep cliffs, known as Shiliang, a so-called Stone Bridge, ranges from 19 centimeters wide at the narrowest and to about 48 centimeters at the widest point. The waterfall plummets 30 meters into a deep pool with a thundering roar. The sight is magnificent. Considerable composure and surefootedness are required to walk across the beam.
