The Peak That Flew from Afar Introduction

Introduction
(Local Name: Feilai Feng) The Peak That Flew from Afar (Feilai Feng) is separated from The Temple of the Hidden Immortals by a mountain stream. According to legend an Indian monk who came here in the year 326 asked ''In which year did this Indian mountain fly here? When Buddha was alive it was the favorite resting place of immortal souls.'' It was thus that the mountain and the monastery built in that same year both got their names. The mountain is riddled with numerous caves and niches, the latter containing about 380 Buddha statues which date back to the 10th C, the time of the Five Dynasties.
