Lotus Mountain or Lianhuashan, 莲花山, is the site of an ancient quarry in Panyu, Guangzhou.
Stone was cut from the imposing cliffs here for centuries but it is now a garden.
There is also a Qing Dynasty fort, as this was a strategic point guarding the Pearl River and the approach to Guangzhou; ultimately the detachment here failed to stop the British from sailing up river and sacking the capital. The fort includes a stone labyrinth that was used for troop training.
With the Qing guards gone, the river is now watched over by a huge golden statue of Guanyin.
Finally there's a pagoda which you can climb to the top of, unlike most others in Guangzhou.
Lianhuashan is a peaceful place to spend a day in Guangzhou.

The Panyu Lianhua Mountain Tourist Area in Guangdong Province holds a grand lotus festival in Guanyin Sheng from June to August every year. During the period, more than 4,000 tanks and nearly two hundred varieties of lotuses decorated the entire Guanyin sacredness to be extraordinary and holy. The lotus leaves out of the mud and is not dyed. It is a holy flower of Buddhism. Among the many varieties on display, there are many excellent products selected from all over the country and around the world. It is a rare lotus festival.
There is also a scenic spot in the lotus water town. You can enjoy the beauty of Qinglian all the year round, and show people a picture of life in the fishing lotus leaves, shaking the lotus boat, so that people can enjoy the body and mind during the play. Get released.
The resort is across the river from the 4A Lotus Hill Scenic Area and close to the Seagull Island, so the air is very fresh and even the breath is sweet.
The entire resort is divided into three main themes: RV, Container House and Chalet House.

The hollowed-out iron staircase sizzles every step of the way, like walking into the old factory buildings of the 1980s, with a retro taste that spans time and space.
Chalet Villa - Aesthetic style:
Colorful flowers are full of life. Some people say that it is a "breathing house", I think it is "the most beautiful background board"!
Lianhua Mountain, one of the eight scenic destination of New Yangcheng, is located in the Pearl River Estuary of Panyu. The location was once a mine with a long history and has given us many stones of strange, fascinating shapes. The mountain is topped by a 40.88 meter tall, 12-ton copper statue of Wanghai Guanyin with gold overlay, making it a destination for devotees praying for a blessing. In the spring, the mountain is covered with cherry blossoms, making for a unparalleled, beautiful sight. The summer offers not only lotus flowers, but a banquet of lotus seeds, lotus roots, and many more delicious options.
