Lingshan Mountain Scenic Area is a permanent venue of the annual World Buddhist Forum and features one of the largest collections of Buddhist architecture and art in China.

The most eye-catching is the Lingshan Grand Buddha, which stands 88 meters tall and is clad in more than 700 metric tons of bronze. The statue is one of the tallest in the world and took more than three years to complete.

After completing the 216-step climb to the Buddha's feet, many visitors like to stroke his bronze toes, which is believed to bring peace and good luck.

Located next to the Grand Buddha is the majestic Brahma Palace, which blends Chinese Buddhist grotto art with traditional Buddhist architecture. The palace's intricate design and the fascinating artwork it houses leave many visitors with a deep impression of Buddhist culture.
