Lingyun Mountain (Lingyun Shan) has been a Buddhist shrine since the Tang Dynasty. Over the years, numerous monasteries have been built at the site. On the hill here is a relatively new temple complex affording excellent views of Dafo and containing hundreds of statues.
Oriental Buddha Park (Dongfang Fodu) holds more than 3000 Buddhist statues, including a 170 meter-long reclining Buddha, the largest in the world. The Mahaoya Tomb Mausoleum (Mahaoyamu Museum) is also located on the mountain. This is a Han Dynasty building containing tombs and other burial artifacts from that period.
