We had a wonderful time in Tibet. We have learned a lot about this unique destination because of the wonderful guide Degyi who is so knowledge and always available towards our tours. We stayed at the Shangri-La Hotel Lhasa, and we would never imagine a Tibet travel could be so nice and amazing without the help of Degyi.

Also, thanks a lot to our Tibetan driver Mr.Wongdun for his safe driving and a good sense of service along the way.

We shall return Tibet in the near future!

Putuo Mountain One of the Four Sacred Mountains of Chinese Buddhism, Putuo Mountain is one of the larger islands belonging to the Zhoushan Archipelago, a group of in all some 1400 islands located at the mouth of Hangzhou Bay, not far from Ningbo City, in eastern China's Zhejiang Province. Putuoshan is home to the most famous Guanyin Temple in all of China (Guanyin is the Goddess of Mercy and the patron saint, as it were, of seafarers).

Putuo MountainNo wonder that in this Buddhist Kingdom, nearly all the tourist spots are connected with Buddhism. And the leading destination for many to check out is the Pu Ji Chan Temple, also called the Fore Temple.

Located at the southern foot of Lingjiu Peak, Pu Ji Chan Putuo MountainTemple ranks as the dominant temple at Mount Putuo. When it was first established during the Song Dynasty, more than 1,000 years ago, the Temple was called Bu Ken Qu Guanyin Temple, literally translated as Not-willing-to-leave Guanyin Temple. In the centuries following, the temple underwent name changes several times. During the reign of Emperor Kangxi, during the Qing Dynasty, more than 200 years ago, it was reconstructed and dubbed the Pu Ji Chan Temple.

Putuo MountainAmong the 586 halls in the Temple, Dayuantong Hall is the largest and is also ranked as the biggest main hall designated for worshiping Guanyin throughout the country. It is said that the hall can seat a hundred people at one time without feeling too cold and spacious and a thousand people together without feeling too crowded. Thus, Dayuantong Hall is also called a hall with life.

Saturated with the fragrance of incense and strains of Buddhist chants, Mountain Putuo now offers a spiritual sanctuary contrast to the wafting, exhaust fumes and the din of auto horns that haunt many cities we live.
