      Pu Tuo Shan, one of the Four Holy Buddhist Mountains, is also known
      as Nan Hai Pu Tuo Shan. This is well-known as the Dojo (Dedicated
      Holy Mountain) of Kuan-yin(sanskrit: Avalokiteshvara; Japanese:
      Kannon). In this Nan Hai Pu Tuo Shan, devotees will be able to tour
      listings of temples dedicated to Guan Shi Yin(Kuan-yin).

      Pu Tuo Shan From Traveller's View:
      Pu Tuo Shan, the Buddhist sacred mountain of the east, is actually a
      mountainous island south of Shanghai and east of Ningbo. It is the
      home of the most popular bodhisattva of China - Guan Yin (Kuan Yin).
      The bodhisattva of compassion, she who hears the cries of the
      suffering, is the queen of Pu Tuo Shan, in Sanskrit she is known as
      Avalokitesvara. Here she rules supreme from the 100 foot tall statue
      of Guan Yin of the South Sea to a diminutive figure of her and to a
      small cave grotto. All of Pu Tuo Shan is devoted to her. Since Pu
      Tuo Shan is an island separated from the rest of China it has not
      seen the industrial development that characterizes the rest of
      China. It is still a rugged, forested island with little development
      and broad sandy beaches. The park-like atmosphere and numerous
      Buddhist temples give the island a peacefulness that can't be found
      on the mainland of China. Most activity on the island centers around
      the 1000 year old Pu Ji Si (Temple of Universal Salvation) and the
      beautiful Hai Yin Pond that fronts the temple. From this central
      location most of the temples, scenic overlooks, and grottoes are an
      easy hike. The latest addition to Pu Tuo Shan's collection of
      temples is the new Nan Hai Guan Yin (South Sea Guan Yin) with its
      giant statue of Guan Yin, exquisite stone carvings, Buddhist art,
      and museum-like murals depicting the Guan Yin story. The islands
      many Chinese Buddhist temples and quiet atmosphere make it an ideal
      place to recuperate from the strains of travel in China and one of
      the best places to see the Buddhist temples of China. And as the
      venue for the World Buddhist Forum, Pu Tuo Shan appealed to the
      world and impressed attenders from around the world this April.
