The highest peak of the Huangyang Mountain, in a height of 583 meters, stands within the confines of the Doumen County in the Zhuhai City known as “the first peak along the gateway to the Pearl River”. Take the Yexi highways at the foot of the mountain and look northward through bus window, visitors will see the Jintai Temple, a striking building in the style of ancient times with the orange-colored glass roof tiles.
A total area of more than 3,000 square meters, the temple has three main entrance halls leading inside. Built on the side of Huangyang, the temple is to the right of Qinglong Mountain and to the left of Baohu Mountain. Jintai Temple is located at the south foot of Huangyang Mountain, where “the general took off his armor”. The 583-meter-high mountain is located in central and west Doumen District, and is known as the “first peak in the mouth along the gateway to the Pearl River”.
It covers an area of more than 30 square kilometers.The scenery is graceful here, as it overlooks Yamen seaport and lies at the back of the highest peak of Huangyang Mountain. Green Dragon Mountain extends to the left and White Tiger Mountain grovels to the right. In the front is a sheet of water and on the opposite bank of the mountain is a high projecting rock named “Dengxian Rock”, where the legendary cowboy king of Doumen ascended to heaven and become immortal. While driving along Huangyang Avenue, strike off into the reservoirs and head straight to the mountain gate, and then ascend the stairs made of more than three hundred stone steps to see the eminent and magnificent Grand Hall of the Great Hero. Here, you will find a glorious statue of Buddha and a comprehensive antique room.
During the Great Leap Forward from 1958 to 1960, the temple was destroyed. Reconstruction has been ongoing from the 1990’s. Today, the temple is a popular destination for Buddhist pilgrims and tourists from all over the world. Many other facilities are planned for this area, financed by local government and a large amount of Buddhist donations.
