Sacred Sites
Adjust font size:

Taoists venerate sacred mountains, wherein they believe deities and immortals dwell, and which also provide tranquil environments ideal for their self cultivation. Therefore early Taoist priests lived on sacred mountains. Later, some Taoist priests accepted appointments at the imperial court, and lived in temples built for them, at the orders of the emperors, in cities. With the development and flourishing of Taoism, many large sites of Taoist activity were built in sacred mountains and cities, some of which are called "palaces" because of their palatial dimensions.
