Buddhist temple near QindaoHu

A lake.

An island on the lake. A tall mountain on the island.

Stone steps more than 1000 years old. A hard climb. First we see a stone hand sculpted with a Shanka and Chakra. We go higher up the mountain. A flower garden. A pond with gold fish with clear water. And some lotus. Even more higher. We see statue of the Laughing Buddha - He must have been a buddhist monk. Go further, you see a peach tree with pink flowers and then Buddha smiles.

Beautifully maintained temple. Spiritual. It was so silent and a very wonderful experience.
