ZhanShan Temple, located to the east of TaiPing Hill at the base of ZhanShan, was built in 1945.  The monastery has five halls and a pagoda, with a total area of 20,000 square meters.  The temple boasts a large collection of skillfully carved statues of Buddha and Buddhist scriptures.  

Upon entering the grounds from the main gate visitors walk past a large pool centered around a white jade statue of Guanyin, the Goddess of Mercy.  After walking past the Goddess of Mercy and ascending the steps, lying on both sides to the opening of ZhanShan's mountain gate are two mighty stone lions which are relics from a Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) prince’s mansion.

Every year during the 8th through the 10th of April on the lunar calender there are tens of thousands of people at Qingdao's ZhanShan Temple.

I really enjoyed the Hall of the Heavenly Kings along with the bell and drum towers. It's nice to have a working part of Qingdao's Buddhist Culture in the heart of the city.
