Mount Taishan is the most famed of the five "holiest" mountains and symbolizes the Chinese Spirit. There are five famous mountains in China - East Tai Shan, West Hua Shan, South Heng Shan, Norh Heng Shan and Central Song Shan. They each have their unique attractions. Since the Qin Dynasty (221BC ~ 206 BC), Mount Taishan, as the royal object of cult, was the venue where past emperors used to worship Heaven and Earth. As countless literati have left inscriptions and steles there, it gets reputation as 'A Natural Museum of History and Art' of modern times.
Mount Taishan is located at the central part of Shan Dong Province and lying across Ji'nan and Tai'an Cities, it is the cradle of Chinese culture and the most magnificent mountain under heaven. With a height of 1,545 meters, its majesty and splendor is incomparable. It is mainly made up of natural sights as well as man-made sights.
