Introduction

On the banks of the Lingjiang River (灵江), at the foot of the Jinzi Mountain (巾子山), and within the ancient city walls is the Longxing Temple. This is where the people of Taizhou Prefecture have prayed to Buddha for thousands of years. The Qianfo (Thousand Buddha) Pagoda is currently the tallest ancient pagoda in Linhai. It is also one of the two remaining pagodas in Zhejiang. There are more than a thousand bricks on the outer wall of the pagoda, which is breathtaking. Standing in front of Qianfo Pagoda, looking up, you will see the vast blue sky; looking behind, there are green hills; and not far away, there is the lively old street. All of this helps people to forget the worldly disturbance.
