Huazang Temple, originally built in 1377 during the Ming Dynasty, is a significant Buddhist site on Mount Emei. Comprising Maitreya Hall, Daxiong Hall, and Bodhisattva Samantabhadra Hall, it stands at an altitude of 3,077 meters, making it the highest Chinese Buddhist temple. A highlight for visitors is the Ten-faced Puxian Stupa, towering at 48 meters and housing urns containing Buddhist ashes. This stupa, the world’s tallest golden Buddha, is a revered site for Buddhists.

Atop Mount Emei, the Golden Summit, or Jinding, rises to 3,079 meters and is renowned for its spiritual significance and natural beauty. Alongside Huazang Temple and the Ten-faced Puxian Stupa, Jinding offers the “Four Wonders”: breathtaking sunrises, ethereal sea of clouds, radiant Buddhist halos, and divine lights. For pilgrims, spending a night on the Golden Summit allows the opportunity to witness these wonders and engage in spiritual contemplation with Bodhisattva Samantabhadra.
