Qundiao

Jianzhen (688 - 763 AD), a native of Yangzhou, was named Chunyu, a prominent monk in Tang Dynasty. In the first year of Tang Tianbao (742 AD), at the invitation of the Emperor of Japan, he traveled to Japan six times and failed the first five times. In June of the 7th year of Tianbao (748 A.D.), 35 people, including Jianzhen Master and apprentices, landed in Ningyuan Estuary (today's Xiaodongtian Scenic Area) of Zhenzhou (Sanya City) after a hurricane struck Yangzhou on their fifth voyage across the sea. Living in Zhenzhou for one year, Dayun Temple was built to spread Buddhist culture. Jianzhen's determination to go to Japan to promote Buddhism remained unchanged. At last, he made six successful eastward journeys in Tianbao's twelve years (A.D. 753). In the past ten years, Japan has made outstanding contributions to the promotion of cultural exchanges between China and Japan and the development of friendship between the two peoples. In commemoration of this historic feat, this giant group sculpture has been specially built.

The fifth landing of Jianzhen's drifting boat shows their indomitable will, confidence in victory and joy for the rest of their lives. On May 8, 2007, Nanshan Dongtian Tourist Area of Sanya City was officially approved by the National Tourism Administration as a national 5A tourist attraction.

It is happy and harmonious. The "turtle" symbolizes longevity in Taoist culture. Here it takes the homonym of "turtle".

Blessed spot

Since the Tang and Song Dynasties, the small and large caves in Nanshan have been famous for their immortal caves. They are comparable to the legendary three immortal islands in the East China Sea, Penglai, Yingzhou and abbot. They are known as the immortal islands in the South China Sea and have attracted many people who seek immortal ways. According to historical records, Bai Yuchan, the famous immortal Taoist priest of the Song Dynasty and the five ancestors of the Southern Zong, returned to this place because of the exquisite beauty of the Hinan Mountains, built Taoist outlook and disseminated Taoist cultural and philosophical thoughts. Nowadays, there are many historical relics such as "the Temple of Fairy" and "the Foot of Fairy" in the scenic area, as well as many travel poems and essays. During the Chunyou period of Southern Song Dynasty, Mao Kui, a county guardian, took office here. He was thriving and loving for mountains and rivers because of his nature. He visited the Nanshan Mountains frequently and found big and small caves in the sky successively. One by one, this scenic spot was developed, leaving stone inscriptions such as "Diary of the Big and Small Caves". The Taoist school has the saying that there are 10 big cave days, 36 small cave days and 72 happy places. Nowadays, there is a "small cave sky" under the huge cliff near the sea in the scenic spot, and there is an ancient fishing platform. According to the Records of Yazhou, there is also a "big cave sky", which is surrounded by stone tables, benches and streams. It is like a fairyland and has been visited by some people, but nowadays no one has found it, full of mystery. What is more mysterious is that Mao Quinn, the county guardian, made great contributions in exploiting the caves of Nanshan. When he took office, Dunshi Chengdao and his followers flew away. Later generations, because of their admiration for their immortal wind, built Mao Zhijun Temple in Nanshan preserve and offered sacrifices.

Fu Shou Nan Shan

Nanshan is an auspicious mountain. In the eyes of the people, Nanshan is closely related to longevity. It is Shoushan in the true sense. There are many places called Nanshan in China, such as Chaozhou in Guangdong, Putian in Fujian, Dazu in Sichuan and Xi'an in Shaanxi. The most famous Nanshan Mountain is located in the East Capital of Qinghai Province. It can be found in the Dictionary of Famous Mountains and Dachuan in China (Shandong Education Press, 1992). But the Nanshan Mountain where the big and small caves are located is very unique. First, it is the southernmost mountain in China, which is worthy of its name and is well-known. Second, the small and large caves in the Nanshan Mountain are regarded as the "heaven and earth of caves" in the South China Sea. Dongtian Fudi is a place where Taoists live in seclusion and practice immortality, and where immortals and real people live. It is also an ideal place for longevity. Thirdly, the results of the third and fourth census in China show that Hainan has the highest average life expectancy, while Sanya has the highest average life expectancy in Hainan and Nanshan is the highest in Sanya. There are hundreds of people over the age of 86, which shows that this is a real land of happiness and longevity. Fourthly, there are longevity trees that can survive thousands of years in the area of Nanshan caves and heavens, which are known as "the old pine trees in Nanshan". Dracaena is an evergreen plant of Agavenaceae. The Cretaceous dinosaur era has emerged, known as the living fossil in plants, and the World Organization for Science, Education and Culture (UNESCO) is listed as a protected tree species. China also designates it as a rare and endangered plant, which belongs to the second-class national key protected tree species, mainly distributed in tropical and subtropical Xuan area. Nowadays, this species is on the verge of extinction, but there are more than 30,000 trees growing in the Nanshan area of Sanya, mainly concentrated in the Dongtian tourist area of Nanshan, the size of Dongtian tourist area. There are more than 2,000 trees over a thousand years old, and the longest one is more than 6,000 years old. Fuze land, nurturing thousands of ancient trees; Shenzu Mountain, Xin-Wangu elves. There are enough reasons to believe that Nanshan is the home of longevity, "Shoubi Nanshan" deserves it here. "Shoubi Nanshan is not old pine" is the true portrayal of this scenic spot.
