Located northeast of Nanjing City, Mount Qixia, originally called Mount She, is named after the Qixia Temple on the mountain. There are three peaks of Mount Qixia. Dragon Peak is in the east and Tiger Peak in the west. The main peak is called Phoenix-flying Peak. The three names come from their shapes. Mount Qixia is covered by thick forest and decorated by beautiful valleys and rocks. The trees are mainly maples. Every autumn, people are deeply moved by the bright red color that covers the mountain.

The eponymous building of Mount Qixia, Qixia Temple, has contributed greatly to the reputation of the mountain. At the top of the temple is a holy shrine with an exquisite statue of a Buddha carved from a large slab of white marble. In addition, there is a figure of Monk Jianzhen to commemorate his great deeds in sailing to Japan and his bravery in overcoming so many difficulties. To the southeast of Qixia Temple, there is a masterpiece of Buddhist art in China.

Mount Qixia, with its beautiful scenery and strong religious atmosphere, attracts thousands of visitors from home and abroad.
