Trip Moments

Jinan is a spring city, and tourist attractions are also dominated by springs. The most famous one is called Baotu Spring, which is known as the first spring in the world. The springs of Jinan merged into a moat, and the moat was brought together in Daming Lake. In fact, there is also a mountain in Jinan, which is also famous for its Baotou Spring and Daming Lake. It is also a famous tourist attraction. This mountain is called Qianfo Mountain. The mountain is located in the south of Jinan City. It is only 285 meters above sea level. It is not majestic, but the mountain is a good place to enjoy the whole picture of Jinan city. Qianfoshan is named after the Buddha. As early as the Sui and Tang Dynasties more than a thousand years ago, Qianfo Mountain was a Buddhist holy place. Qianfoshan is known as Lishan. It is said that he once farmed in Lishan. During the reign of Emperor Huang (AD 581-600), because of the prevalence of Buddhism, thousands of Buddha statues were carved along the mountain, so it was called Qianfo Mountain. These Buddha statues are still preserved and become precious historical monuments. There is a Xingguo Temple on the Qianhu Mountain. It was built in the Tang Dynasty. The Qianfo Cliff with the Buddha statue is located in the Xingguo Temple. There are Sui Dynasty stone Buddhas on Qianfo Cliff, which has a long history and high artistic value. In 1992, another Wanfo Cave was built in Qianfo Mountain, which combines the essence of Dunhuang, Longmen, Maiji Mountain and Yungang National Four Grottoes. Xingguo Temple is one of the most important attractions in Qianfo Mountain, and the biggest attraction is in Qianfo Cliff. From the 7th year of the Emperor's reign (587) to the 15th year of the Emperor's reign (595), there are more than 130 cave statues.
