On the top of the mountain is "Lingyan Temple", one of the four famous ancient temples in my country (Dangyang Yuquan Temple, Nanjing Qixia Temple and Tiantai Guoqing Temple). Lingyan Temple was built in the reign of Emperor Xiaowen of the Northern Wei Dynasty (479) and rebuilt in the reign of Zhenguan in the Tang Dynasty (627-649).

The Thousand Buddha Hall was built in the Tang Dynasty and is now a wooden structure rebuilt in the Ming Dynasty. In the hall, there are 40 colorful clay sculptures from the Song Dynasty, which are nearly a thousand years old and are still well preserved. Another attraction in the temple is the Pizhi Pagoda.

The shape is peculiar, the tower is different from top to bottom, the first to third floors are double eaves, and the fourth to ninth floors are single eaves. The quaint doors and windows, the changing eaves of the tower and the slender tower body make people feel solemn and generous without being delicate. There are 167 various tomb towers and 81 epitaphs in the Tallinn on the west side of the Daxiong Hall in the temple from the Tang Dynasty to the Qing Dynasty. The scale and quantity are second only to the Tallinn of the Shaolin Temple in Songshan, Henan.
