It sits up there beyond reach in abject solitude. from the bottom you can see range upon range of pavilions supported by dozens of wooden pillars. on entering the temple, you will be surprised by its half-house and half-cave inner structures.

The highest peak on the mountain called Tianfeng Summit, which is at 2016.1 meters (6,617 feet), in Hunyuan County, Datong City. The steep north slope is covered with verdant pine trees.
