Lingyun Mountain has been a Buddhist shrine since Tang Dynasty with numerous monasteries being built over the years. On the hill here is a relatively new temple complex affording excellent views with an Oriental Buddha park which contains over 3000 Buddhist statues and a 170m-long reclining Buddha.
