Teach Qin Shihuang’s east tour, Han Wudi twice fortunately (now Chengyang District, Qingdao), are closely related to the activities of Fang Xiandao.
As early as five or six thousand years ago, Laoshan produced a splendid Longshan culture. It is also a place for the spread of Taoism. It began in the Han and Tang Dynasties. The Song and Yuan dynasties developed to the heyday, and the Ming and Qing dynasties did not decline. In the prime time, there was the saying of the “Nine Palaces, Eight Views and Seventy-two Skulls”. The Taoist Taoism is the Northern Reality.

The famous Buddhist temples include Haiyin Temple, Chaohaiyuan, Huayan Temple, etc., Fa Xian, Laoshan, Ci Zhan, Shan He, etc. He once promoted Dharma in Laoshan.
In the first year of the founding of Emperor Wu of the Western Han Dynasty (the first 140 years), Zhang Lianfu came to Mount Laoshan to worship the three officials and worship the worship, which laid the foundation for Laoshan Taoism. From the Western Han Dynasty to the end of the Five Dynasties, Laoshan Taoism basically belonged to the Tianshi Road after the reform of the Taiping Road and the Southern and Northern Dynasties. From the sectarianism, it belonged to the Louguan Education Group, the Lingbao School, and the Shangqing School (also known as Maoshan Zong, Court). Soap sect).

The Chongfo Temple (commonly known as Jinggou Courtyard) in Laoshan was built in the fifth year of Weiyuan Emperor Jingyuan (AD 264). This is the oldest temple in Laoshan, and should be regarded as the beginning of Buddhism in Laoshan. In the Eighth Year of the Eastern Jin Dynasty (AD 412), the monks who went to India and other places sought to return to the country, and the hurricane drifted to the land of the island of Laoshan, the southern bank of the mountain, and the county was the county of Changguang County. Li Yi, a Buddhist monk who was obsessed with Buddhism, was told that the Fa-rectification was a name for the West, and he was sent to the city, and he was told that he had built a stone Buddha temple (that is, Chaohaiyuan). Since then, Buddhism has made a name for itself in the Laoshan Mountains. Later, Laoshan successively built Shizhuyu (later renamed Huijuyuan) and Shilianyuan (commonly known as Chengyang Temple). The creation of the Fahai Temple in the Northern Wei Dynasty marked the beginning of the scale of Buddhism in Laoshan.
