Fei Lai Feng, Hangzhou

4.5
#3 of 37 in Parks in Hangzhou
Historic Site Religious Site
Explore the distinctive limestone peak of Fei Lai Feng, a hill best known for its many Buddhas, carved into the cliffs and rocky brookside walls. Myths and legends abound in this place of spiritualism and ancient natural scenery, with a number of temples, shrines, and religious artworks adding much to the serene, almost magical atmosphere created by the hill's many caves, its tinkling streams, and spring. As you stroll around the hill, keep an eye out for the 470 Buddhas carved into the rock, created at various times between the 10th and 14th centuries CE.

  • The number one attraction in Hangzhou. I rate it even better than the West Lake. Many cool carved statues and lots of little trails to walk on in the woods. Go early to avoid the crowds!  more »
