AKA "Temple of Inspired Seclusion" or "Temple of Soul's Retreat". There is a customary belief here that if you rub the belly of this Buddha, he'll fortell your future and all your wishes come true.

There is a series of rock carvings on the way towards this Temple. It's known as the "The Peak That Flew Afar"

Directions: In the FeiLaiFeng Peak (Flying Peak)
