Nanshan (southern mountain in Chinese) Temple, 20 km southwest from Sanya, is the core of the Buddhism Park. The Buddhist source of Nanshan temple can be observed from such a popular blessing expression - Good forture is much as the East Sea; longevity is high as Nanshan (福如东海, 寿比南山 in Chinese).
Sanya Nanshan Temple, with a gigantic statue of Guanyin (a Goddess of Mercy) on a sea-top platform, is the biggest Buddhist temple built up in 1998 since the founding of the PR. China. Nanshan temple, standing between mountain and sea, has the most significant looks of Tang Dynasty style.
The blue sea, sunny beach, silvery sands, green plants and clear sky reflect a fantasy and color of heaven. Accompanying with the bell, the waves dashing against rock sounds like Buddhist music which can make someone be relieved mentally. Nanshan temple attracts a large number of pilgrims. They come here in the continuous stream to worship for peace and happiness.
