Flying Peak

19 July 2009

Feilai Feng (飞来峰), the "Peak that flew here", is a small rocky outcrop wihin the Lingyin Temple complex. The rocks feature hundreds of carvings, many of the Buddha, some contained within caves.

The peak is made from limestone, and stands out from the surrounding landscape. Legend has it that the peak was originally from India, but flew one night to Hangzhou as a demonstration of the omnipotence of Buddhist law.
