Throughout history, federal emperors of every dynasty paid increasingly attention to the creation of buildings on Wudang Mountain, and in the Ming Dynasty, Wudang Mountain was the center of China Taoism.

The ancient buildings in Wudang Mountain, great in size and beautiful in artistic design, built on steep hills or in sharp cliffs to achieve a harmonious unity between buildings and nature, have been praised as the ultimate showcase of China's ancient buildings and approved World Cultural Legacy.

Thousands of beautiful ancient relics, the visual manifestation of Taoism, contribute the most enchanting views in Wudang Mountain.
