Since the first day of the lunar New Year, Feb 19 this year, the mountain's major temples -- Tayuan, Bishan, Yuanzhao, Nanshan, Luohou, Guangren, Zhenhai, Puhua, Baiyun, and Longquan -- and the Fomu and Guanyin grottoes started their ceremonies, praying for world peace, prosperity, happiness, and good harvests. Mount Wutai brings together Han and Tibetan Buddhist traditions and is considered an "Oriental Buddhist Capital", with many relics, and permanent residences.
Here is a collection of photos about the various ceremonies or gatherings in the mountain during the Spring Festival.
