Take time off from business and visit this great place. Spiritual, serene, peaceful - can never tire of going there. April 2013 was probably the sixth time.

Anshan 219 Park

Reviewed By Martin A - Dalian, China

In winter, there are two areas of the frozen lake kept in great shape for skaters. One large area has a skating rink by a pagoda and another section, nearby, has a hockey rink. A beautiful pagoda serves as a picturesque backdrop, great for photos. The park is famous for the world's largest jade Buddha, a short walk from the lake.

Jade Buddha Court

Reviewed By Jaya M - Singapore, Singapore

This 8 metre tall statue of Buddha carved from a single piece of jade is just stunning. I spent about half an hour inside the main temple, and didn't want to leave. The temple is set inside the 219 park, and there are two temples with jade statues of Buddha. The main temple is beautiful, and has murals painted over the walls as well as this incredible Buddha.
Highly recommend it! The entrance fee does seem comparatively high, however it's well worth it.

Anshan Qianshan Buddha

Reviewed By MountainMama304 - St. Petersburg, Florida

We used the little bus and the tram, but still were covered in sweat by the time we ascended the final steps to the temple that protects the mountain Buddha. Totally worth it as the views of the Mountains, Valleys, temples, and forest were spectacular. Cheap ice cream bars and cold sodas hit the spot. Recommend! English-speaking guide critical to get full context of what you are seeing.

Steps by step, an ancient and spiritual China is revealed for those who search for it. I recommend it during the autumn, end of october, after Golden Week (more empty and beautiful trees and landscapes).

因为对佛教并不十分了解,作为一个鞍山人这还是第一次去玉佛苑。
我是从二一九公园里面的入口进入的,二一九里面的人很多,孩子的笑声老人聊天的声音组成了闹市般的繁华。相反的,玉佛苑里面游客并不多,踏上入玉佛苑的大门就好像进入了另外一个世界,安静,庄严。拜了几个小的殿之后,就来到了主殿玉佛阁,玉佛阁里有有很多僧人和一直不停的诵经声音,听久了就得都就得心中宁静了不少,再看看在蒲团上跪拜的游客脸上的虔诚,突然有一点点懂得了信仰的力量。
给我留下最深刻印象的是罗汉洞,原因很囧,因为冷。刚进去的时候还走走停停认认看看两旁的罗汉,到最后就是一路疯跑的跑向出口,里面太冷了,告诫后去的游客,下次去罗汉洞看到有厚大衣一定不要放过。。
