Taining Global Geopark is located in Taining County, in the northwestern part of Fujian Province. Covering an area of 492.5 square kilometers (49,250 hectares), the geopark comprises four major scenic areas, Shiwang, Big Golden Lake, Baxian Cliff and Jinrao Mountain, plus a tour to ancient Taining City.

The park has a number of geological formations and is characterized by the Danxia landform, boasting rough granite, volcanic, and tectonic landscapes. Its unique scenery also attracts a large number of foreign visitors. Some man-made features have made the geopark appear even more impressive, for example that of Shangshudi, the most well-preserved Ming Dynasty folk house in southern China. 

The Scenic Zone of Ganlu Rock

It is situated in the northeast of the scenic area of Golden Lake. Here, red cliffs, rock holes and caves develop on a wide range of area, where the Rock Holes & Caves Museum lies. In the caves, there are a number of temples of different styles. Integrating rock holes, caves and temple culture, the scenic zone consists of two scenic spots Tiantai Rock and Ganlu Rock. Uniquely constructed, Ganlu Rock Temple lies in the cave of Ganlu Rock that is narrow inside while wide open outside. The spring water oozing from the rock layers in the temple is clear, sweet and cool like manna, and is called Dragon Spring, hence the name Ganlu (literally manna) Rock Temple. The temple was wholly constructed with wood, connected with T-shape negative tilts without a single iron nail used.
