Details
The old Chinese saying goes “to have eyes but fail to recognize Mount Tai“, indicating whoever has eyes should know Mount Tai. Throughout the history, the emperors came a long way here to hold fengshan worship ceremony; Emperor Wu of the Han Dynasty made eight trips, Emperor Qianlong paid eleven visits and the pilgrims have come year after year. Mount Tai is the mountain of gods, a sacred mountain. Mountain worship has been deeply rooted in the world civilizations. However, Mount Tai is a rarity in the world in that it has been held in reverence by the supreme rulers of all dynasties in a history over thousands of years. The towering and magnificent topography, rich and fertile environments, and the fluid and volatile climate and landscape lay the physical foundation for the awe-inspiring mountain; the superior location, the long brilliant prehistoric civilization and unique Qi-Lu culture constitute the preeminence of Mount Tai among the Five Great Mountains. Mount Tai witnesses the grandeur of Chinese history. A monumental relic of Chinese civilization, Mount Tai is famed for its historical significance.
