Feilai Peak

Feilai Peak, also named Lingjiu Peak, stands in front of Lingyin Temple in Hangzhou City, Zhejiang Province. Feilai Peak faces the southern slope of the Lingyin Temple, scattered with more than 340 Buddhist stone statues, and many rare grotto arts in the southern area of the Yangtze River, which can compare beauty with the Dazu cave in Sichuan province. The most noticeable feature is the Buddhist image Maitreya with a smiling face, bare breast and belly; the biggest stone statue on the Feilai Peak as well as a representative of Song dynasty art. All of these represent the highest level of stone carving grottoes in South of China.
