Lingyin Temple and Feilaifeng Peak (Flying Peak)

Lingyin Monastery is a famous Buddhist temple with Monastery of Soul's Retreat as its alternate name. It is located at the northwest of West Lake and usually regarded as a scenic spot of West Lake.

Also known as "Lingjiu Peak", "Feilaifeng" Peak is situated in front of Lingyin Temple. The hill is made up by limestone which is totally different from other hills around. On this peak, no rock is common, no tree is young and no cave is shallow. Some rock is like dragon, some rock is like tiger and some is like monkey, just making the peak a zoo made of stone. In addition, 345 statues of different dynasties which are Five Dynasties, Song Dynasty and Yuan Dynasty have been built on Feilaifeng Peak and regarded as treasures of Chinese rock-cave statues.
