Time for the Island City to Shine

Updated: April 21 2011(GMT+08:00)

The Spring of Putuo Mountain Tourism Festival will be held from April 9-20 in Putuo district of Zhoushan, an island city in Zhejiang province.

One of the four great Buddhist mountains in China, Putuo Mountain became a Buddhist sanctuary during the Tang Dynasty (AD 618-907). Considered the meditation place of Guanyin (Buddhist Goddess of Mercy), it has attracted pious pilgrims far and wide.

Buddhism concerts, forums and a live show of sand sculptures depicting tales of Guanyin on the  shores of  the island will introduce the goddess to visitors from home and abroad.

Visitors will also have a chance to immerse themselves in Buddhist-themed exhibitions and local intangible cultural heritage performances.
