Wuyou Mountain & Monastery


The Wuyou monastery is a pretty pink walled building resting on the top of the hill. A monastery was originally constructed here in about 742 AD although the complex has undergone numerous periods of renovation over the years. Today, the building is something of a museum, containing calligraphic paintings, a small band of terracotta monks and other Buddhist artifacts. The view of the Buddha and the river below is impressive from up here and there is also a popular vegetarian restaurant on the top of the hill.

On top of the mountain stands Wuyou Temple, which was built in the prime period of Tang Dynasty. It is composed of 7 Buddhist palaces and surrounded by luxuriant woods, quite and tastefully laid out. Within the temple, the Erya Platform is the place where Guo Sheren (an official in Han Dynasty) annotated the Classical Book of China—Erya.
