What people are saying:

Group of buildings, the original group of buildings at the front of the mountain, called Chaoyuan Palace, on the hillside there are Tingti Palace and Guangsheng Palace, each with a main hall and a side hall. Going up to the eighteen discs, you will reach the highest point of the Snail Palace, also called Grandma Ding. The Snail Palace is built on a steep mountainside. There are Grandma Pavilion, Dressing House, Yingshuang Tower, Bell and Drum Tower, Hexagonal Pavilion and Wooden Archway on the wide platform. The layout is reasonable and the limited area and topography of the factory platform are fully utilized. The grottoes here were first carved in Gaoyang when Emperor Wenxuan of the Northern Qi Dynasty, that is, between 550 and 560 AD. The cliffs carved on the "Guzhong Huangshan" stele were all carved at the end of Gaoyang, and have a history of more than 1430 years.

Additional Information

Introduction

Wahuang Palace is a compound of palaces and temples built to honor the Chinese goddess Nüwa. It was built into the side of a steep cliff during the Northern Qi dynasty (550-577). Most of the buildings that remain today were built in the Ming and Qing dynasties, although visitors can still see the remains of Northern Qi dynasty stone engravings and Buddhist grottoes. The palace complex covers a large area – visitors can explore the buildings at the bottom of the mountain before ascending the cliff to visit the hillside temples.
