General Information: Mount Emei (Eyebrow Mountain) is a range located in the Sichuan province of Western China. Mt. Emei (occasionally referred to as Mt. Emeishan) is one of the four sacred Buddhist mountains in China. The patron bodhisattva of Emei is Samantabhadra, in some Chinese sources called Puxian. As far back as the 16th century, the Emei region is also known for the practice of martial arts in the monasteries. Mount Emei was made a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1996. This is the location of the first Buddhist temple built in China in the 1st century AD. The site houses nearly seventy Buddhist monasteries of the Ming and Qing period, most of them located at high elevations near the mountain top. The monasteries demonstrate a flexible architectural style that adapts to the landscape. Some are built on terraces of varying levels, others are on raised stilts.
