The Pagoda Cluster in Yinshan is located in high mountains and lofty hills in Yanshou Town, Changping District, Beijing. With a cluster of pagodas and a profusion of flowers all over the lush green mountain, it is referred to as “Iron- Wall Silver Mountain (Yinshan Tiebi)”, one of the eight most beautiful scenic spots in Beijing during the Ming and Qing Dynasties.
Now there are 18 pagodas built in the Jin (1115-1234), Yuan (1206-1368), Ming (1368- 1644) and Qing (1644-1911) dynasties in this area, including seven multi-eaved ones and eleven overturned-bowl-shaped ones. The main pagoda area gathers the most pagodas in Yinshan and is where the Splendor-of-the-Buddha Temple used to be. The multi-eaved pagodas built in the Jin Dynasty represent the largest and best-preserved of the kind in China. Many of the most famous Buddhist masters in China are also buried here.
While you are strolling in the scenic area, you can hear melodious and deep chimes of the Buddhist bells from Yinshan Mountain, which represents the wishes for your happiness and good health.
