This is a place of great religious significance... commemorating Lao Zhi (老子) who is deemed the founder of the Tao religion (道教). Although a tourist attraction with the statue of Lao Zhi (老君岩), it is quite peaceful and serene. Worth a visit if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Excellent place for an evening getaway with the right company. Can drive to the top and then walk up the mountain. Beautiful scene as can see the entire city from the top underneath a huge Brass/Copper statue of the city's freedom fighter
