Shaanxi Xi'an Mt. Huashan 28——Yu Quan Temple
Shaanxi Province

Situated in Huayin City, 120 kilometers (about 75 miles) east from Xi'an City of Shaanxi Province, Mt. Huashan is known as 'The Number One Precipitous Mountain under Heaven'. It is one of the five sacred mountains in China. The other four mountains are Mt. Taishan in Shandong, Mt. Hengshan in Hunan, Mt. Hengshan in Shanxi, and Mt. Songshan in Henan.

 In ancient times, Mt. Huashan was called Mt. Taihuashan. From a distance the five peaks seem to form the shape of a 'flower' (hua in Chinese), hence the name 'Huashan'. It is famous for its natural vistas of steep and narrow paths, precipitous crags, and a high mountain range. It is home to several influential Taoist temples where emperors of past dynasties made pilgrimages, making Mt. Huashan the holy land of Taoism.
Huayin: Yuquan Courtyard of Huashan
Yu Quan Temple is one of the famous Taoist temples in the north of China, and it’s also one of the most activated venues for Chinese Taoism. It was built in the periods of Song Shenzong, Huang You, that is, from 1049 to 1051, by Taoist Jia Deshen for his master Chen Tuan. After several destructions and renovations, the current scale didn’t come into being until to the Ming and Qing Dynasties. It is called Xi Yi Temple, as the name is originated from Xi Yi brought by Emperor Taizong to Chen Tuan. Later the name is changed into the Yu Quan Temple. Ever since ancient times, Huashan is noted for being extremely magnificent and precipitous. There is only one perilous passage to the summit. YuquanTemp is the starting point of climbing Huashan
