Wudang Mountain


Ladies and gentlemen,

Welcome to Wudang Mountain. I'd like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to you all. ( Introduce yourself to the guests. ) I am happy to have this opportunity to show you round the Wudang Mountain. Your cooperation will be very much appreciated. Thank you.

First of all, please let me give you a brief introduction to the Wudang Mountain. Wudang Mountain is also called Taihe Mountain and Xianshi Mountain; it is located near Danjiangkou City, Hubei Province, which is China's famous Taoist resort. It is also one of the first state-level key scenic, pots and a world cultural heritage site.

we know that Wudang Mountain is famous for its grand scale of construction. While the ancient architecture here was built all through the Tang, Song, Yuan, Ming and Qing Dynasties, it reached its zenith during the Ming Dynasty. It has 33 buildings, covering an area of more than 100 million square meters, after hundreds years of vicissitudes, it still covers nearly 50,000 square meters.

Today let us go there to enjoy the beautiful natural scenery and rich Taoism culture.

There is a common saying that “Buddha occupies all of the world's famous mountains”, but in Wudang Mountain, Taoism is the dominant religion. It is said that Immeasurable Buddha originally occupied the Wudang Golden Peak. When Emperor Zhenwu became an Immortal and wandered about here, he was very taken by this land and its beauty and went to seek out at the Immortal Buddha at Tianzhu Peak to discuss borrowing eight steps of this land. The Immortal Buddha was surprised that another Immortal like Emperor Zhenwu would want so little land, particularly in view of the Emperor's unlimited supernatural power. So the Immortal Buddha walked eight steps away from Tianzhu peak, and since each step covered 50 kilometers, Emperor Zhenwu became Wudong Mountain's new permanent resident and the mountain became a Taoist shrine.

Some 72 peaks, 36 rocky cliffs, 24 streams, 10 lakes, 3 pools, and 9 springs are clustered around Tianzhu peak. Wudang Mountain also has dense forests with many varieties of plants, including 600 of the l,800 medicinal herbs recorded in Compendium of Materia compiled by the Ming Dynasty pharmacist Li Shizhen. Therefore the mountain is also known as a “natural herb farm”。

Wudang Taoism Monastry

Who knows when wudang Taoism Monastry was first built? Legend has it that as early as the Zhou Dynasty people began to build thatched huts here to practice Taoism. A Five-Dragon Temple was built during the Tang Dynasty Emperor's Zhenguan reign ( 627- 649 A. D.) and renovations were done in later dynasties. So we can say that wudang Taoism Monastry was first built during the Tang Emperor Zhenguan's reign. Taoism was further strengthened during the reign of the Ming Dynasty Chengzu Emperor. In 1412 construction work began on 33 halls and monasteries and these buildings were finally finished in 1423. This large complex consists of 9 halls, 9 monasteries, 72 temples, and 36 nunneries occupying a total floor space of l. 6 million square meters. The Taoist wudang Mountain still is a major Taoist center and place of pilgrimage for Taoist believers throughout China. Its buildings are splendid examples of traditional Chinese architecture and the Mountain was named a /Krorld Heritage Cultural Site in 1994.

Wudang Boxing

Wudang Mountain not only boasts a rich Taoist culture, but also can claim to be the birthplace of wudang boxing, which is also called Neijia boxing. Wudang boxing has a long and profound history. It was pioneered by the wudang Taoist Master Zhang Sanfeng during late Yuan and early Ming dynasty. wudang boxing has undergone constant development and evolution and, next to Shaolin martial arts, is the most famous Chinese hand-to-hand fighting technique. Indeed, the two schools are known as “Northern Shaolin, Southern wudang”. Wudang boxing has now spread not only across China, but outside the country as well.

Zixiao Palace

Well, after some climbing, the Zixiao Palace now stands before us. Its differently shaped and sized statues are a Ming Dynasty artistic treasure. The Zixiao Palace was built in 1413, or the llth year of the Emperor Yongle's reign. The original buildings include more than 860 palaces, galleries, verandas, halls and pavilions. Zixiao Palace is at the back of Zhanqi Peak, and faces Zhaobi Peak, Santai Peak, Wulao Peak, Candles Peak, Luomao Peak, and Xianglu Peak. On its right is Leishen Cave, and on its left is Yuji Pool and Baozhu Peak. Since the surrounding hills form a natural chair with two dragons playing with a pearl, Emperor Yongle called it the “blessed Zixiao land”.


Do you know where we are now? Yes, now we are on the beautiful Nanyan in Wudang, in which the magnificent architecture of the buildings blends in with natural landscape's beauty. There is a temple on the cliff, which was built in the Yuan Dynasty. If you are interested in it, you can go and have a look.

Tianzhu Peak and Golden Palace

Now, we are finally at the Tianzhu Peak. Tianzhu Peak is l,612 meters high and is also called Yizhuqin ian. From its summit, we have a spectacular view of the“72 peaks to the big top”. The splendid hall located on the peak's summit was built during the 14t year of Emperor Yongle's reign and is China's largest golden temple. Well, dear friends, it is said that these lights never go out. Let's ask ourselves,¨Why do they continually glow?“ The answer is that they are all very exquisite and precise, so their light can change according to the direction of the wind. This feature underscores the wisdom and superb artistic skills of China's ancient craftsmen.

Wudang Taoism Music

Wudang Taoism Mountain is also famous for its music. It is an important element. It is an important culture and key part of China's musical heritage. Taoist music is a unique combination of royal, folk, and religious music. It is mysterious, solemn and elegant.

Ever since the Tang Dynasty Emperor Taizong built the¨ Five Dragons Temple,” Wudang Mountain has become an important Taoist shrine for emperors, statesmen, generals, and ordinary people to and pray for happiness.
