Lingyin Temple

Lingyin Temple is one of the oldest Buddhist temples of northern China. It is built beside the Peak Flown from Afar (Fei Lai Feng) to the west of the West Lake. Legend has it that 1600 years ago, an Indian monk came to Hangzhou. He saw the astonishing beauty of the mountains here and thought it was where immortals retreated. Hence he had a temple built and named it the Lingyin Temple (Immortals Retreat Temple).

The Peak Flown From Afar is just opposite to the Lingyin Temple. It is a 209 meters limestone peak, which was said to fly over from India and set here. Representing the Southern China's carving grottoes, there are 388 ancient statues carved during the period of the Five Dynasties to the Yuan Dynasty (907-1368 A D) in the Peak Flew From Afar Cave. The stone figures appears in a variety of poses, standing, squatting, sitting and sleeping. They are national cultural heritages which are under the protection of the national government.
