Pagoda Forest at Silver Mountain Introduction

Introduction
Pagoda Forest at Silver Mountain is located in Changping District. It was appraised as the important protection unit of cultural relic of the national by State Council. It lies o­n a mountain, which is covered with silver-like snow in winter, hence the name ‘Silver Mountain’. The mountain used to be a famous Buddhist shrine in north China. As early as the Tang Dynasty it was the site for performing Buddhist rites, being rivaled by Gold Mountain in Jiangsu Province in south China. In the years of Yuanhe, eminent monk Deng Yinfeng gave lectures o¬n Buddhism here. In the years of Tianhui in the Jin Dynasty, eminent monk Master Fojue arrived here to found Dayansheng Temple. Since then, the temple has been visited by numerous prominent monks; if anyone of them died here, a stupa would be built in his commemoration.
