Scenic spot culture

taoist culture

Laoshan is one of the birthplaces of Taoism. Since the Spring and Autumn Period, Laoshan has gathered a group of alchemists who have been engaged in health and self-cultivation for a long time. The Ming Dynasty chronicle once contained "Wu Wang-fu tasted the Delingbao Man Jing of DengLaoshan". By the late Warring States period, Laoshan had become a famous "East China Sea Immortal Mountain" in China. During the Eastern Tour to teach Qinshihuang, Emperor Wudi of Han Dynasty was lucky twice (Chengyang District of Qingdao City today), which was closely related to the activities of Fang Xiandao. In the Han Shu, Emperor Wudi "did not have Taiyi Xiandong 9 when the ancestral temple gods were in Jiao Men Palace" in Laoshan.

As early as five or six thousand years ago, Laoshan produced a splendid Longshan culture. It was also the main place for Taoism to spread. It began in the Han and Tang dynasties. The Song and Yuan dynasties reached its peak. The Ming and Qing dynasties never declined. At its peak, there was the saying of "Nine Palaces, Eight Views and Seventy-two Ancients". Laoshan Taoism was the Quanzhen sect in the north and was called "the second jungle under the whole world of Taoism". The famous Taoist monks Qiu Chuji, Zhang Sanfeng, Xu Fuyang, Liu Zhijian and Liu Ruozhuang all built corridors in Laoshan. At the same time, Buddhism has a history of spreading with Taoism. The famous ancient temples of Buddhist temples include Haiyin temple, Chaohai temple, Huayan temple and so on. Faxian, Yinshan, Cizhan, Goodwill and other eminent monks have promoted Buddhist Dharma in Laoshan. In the first year of Emperor Wu of the Western Han Dynasty (140 years ago), Zhang Lianfu laid the foundation of Laoshan Taoism by offering sacrifices to three officials and apprentices. From the Western Han Dynasty to the end of the Five Dynasties, Laoshan Taoism basically belonged to Taiping Taoism and the Tianshi Taoism after the reform of Kou Qian in the Northern and Southern Dynasties. It was divided into Lou Guan Sect, Lingbao Sect and Shang Qing Sect (also known as Maoshan Sect and Gezao Sect).

In the early Song Dynasty, Laoshan Taoist priest Liu Ruozhuo was awarded the title of "Huagai Zhenren" by the Taizu of Song Dynasty, while all Taoist temples in Laoshan belonged to the newly created "Huagai School".

Since the Jin and Yuan Dynasties, the Quanzhen School of Taoism has risen, and Laoshan temples have converted to the various factions of the "North Seven Truths". After Genghis Khan closed the hill, Laoshan Taoism flourished.

In the Ming Dynasty, the "Longmen Sect" of Laoshan Taoism was derived from three sects, bringing the total number of sects to 10, and Taoism flourished in Laoshan and its surrounding areas. By the mid-Qing Dynasty, there were nearly 100 Taoist temples, and there was a saying of "Nine Palaces, Eight Views and Seventy-two Ancients" to the outside world.

After the founding of the PRC, the Qingdao Municipal People's Government allocated special funds in 1952 to carry out the key maintenance of Laoshan Taoist temples, and Laoshan Taoism was protected and survived.

In the early period of the "Cultural Revolution", Laoshan Taoism as the "Four Old Ages" was impacted, the gods were destroyed, the Taoists were demobilized, and the religious activities of Laoshan Taoism were abolished.

After the Third Plenary Session of the Eleventh Central Committee of the Communist Party of China, the Qingdao Municipal People's Government gradually and systematically restored some Taoist temples in Laoshan, implemented religious policies, recalled Taoists, restored gods and returned temple property. Now Laoshan has successively restored and opened the temples of Taiqing Palace, Shangqing Palace, Mingxia Cave and Taiping Palace. Laoshan Taoism resumed its normal religious activities .

Buddhist culture

Buddhism has been introduced into Laoshan area for more than 1700 years. Laoshan Buddhism began in the Wei and Jin Dynasties and flourished in the Sui and Tang Dynasties. It reached a climax in the Ming Dynasty and declined in the late Qing Dynasty. The Chongfo Temple in Laoshan (commonly known as Jinggou Temple) was built in the fifth year of Jingyuan (264 A.D.) of Emperor Wei and Yuan Dynasty. It is the oldest monastery in Laoshan and should be regarded as the beginning of Buddhism in Laoshan. In the eighth year of Yixi in the Eastern Jin Dynasty (412 A.D.), Buddhist monk Faxian returned to India and other places to search for Buddhist sutras. When he encountered a hurricane, he drifted to the South Bank of Laoshan Mountain in Buqi County and landed near Kawabata Island. At that time, the county was the prefecture of Changguang County. Li Ying, a Buddhist monk, heard that Faxian was a famous Buddhist monk who took Buddhist sutras from the West, then took Faxian into his city. According to the Confucian classics, the Shifo Temple (Chaohai Court) was established at the place where it landed. Since then, Buddhism has gained a great reputation in Laoshan and spread widely. Later, Shizhu Temple (later renamed Huijuyuan) and Shilian Temple (commonly known as Chengyang Temple) were built successively in Laoshan. The establishment of Fahai Temple in the Northern Wei Dynasty marked the beginning of Laoshan Buddhism.

Scenic route

There are four tourist routes in Laoshan, including three land routes (south, East and middle routes) and one water route.

1. South Route: From Hong Kong East Road or East China Sea East Road eastward through Shazikou, Dengwin, Liuqing River to Taiqing Palace, mainly visiting Taiqing Scenic Area. If time permits, you can go to Shangqing scenic spot or Jufeng scenic spot; you can also go to Chessboard Stone scenic spot. This tour route is close to several famous scenic spots and can be easily traveled back and forth on that day. General travel agencies can arrange to take this route, but also the busiest Laoshan tourist routes.

It's very convenient to take a tour bus or several taxis, which can reduce the tiredness of climbing mountains. If you take No. 104, No. 113 and No. 304 buses, you can also visit this line.

2. The Eastern Route: Starting from Licun, Licang District, we turn north to East first, and then through Chengfu, Wang Gezhuang to Yangkou mainly visit Yangkou Scenic Area. If we start early in the morning, have a compact tour schedule and have more time left, we can visit Chessboard Stone Scenic Area to the South or go directly to Taiqing Scenic Area and return from the southern line.

According to the number of people in the same line, you can travel through the main scenic spots on the East and South lines in one day by bus or taxi. If you take bus No. 123, No. 312 and No. 106, you can only visit the eastern route.

3. Middle Line: Licun, Licang District, is also the departure point. It turns eastward through Beilongkou, northward through Beizhai and Wuyi Lane to Beijiushui Scenic Area. If time permits, this line can visit Hualou scenic spot on the way, or drive through Liushutai to climb giant peak, or walk through Chaoyin Waterfall to reach giant peak. From Dalaoguan to Yangkou Scenic Area.

It can be arrived by taxi or bus No. 107, No. 110, No. 311 and No. 365.

4. Waterway: Qingdao Bay Tourist Wharf takes a boat tour of the sea scenery, landing in Taiqing Bay, mainly visiting Taiqing and Shangqing scenic spots.

Giant Peak Scenic Spot: The same way as the South Line, you can get off at the toll station of Giant Peak Scenic Spot at Dahe East Station. Tourists can enjoy the historic and cultural stone carvings of Laoshan Mountain on the stone walls along Panshan Highway and experience the different pleasures of traveling on the ropeway and along the Rockway at the ropeway station.
