Qingyuan Shan

Introduction

Qingyuan Shan is a national park and lies 3km (2 miles) to the north of Quanzhou. It has been attracting visitors for over 1,000 years and is a very scenic area with woods, streams, small hills, stone crags and caves.

One striking feature of Qingyuan Shan is the giant stone statue of a round old man who is presumed to be the revered philosopher Laozi. It is thought to be the largest Daoist stone sculpture in existence. Carved out of a single piece of rock, the statue is 5 meters (17ft) high, and has a diameter of 7 meters (23ft). Longevity is said to be granted to those who climb up and rub noses with Laoziís statue.
