The city of Leshan, 167 kilometers from Chengdu, is located at the confluence of three rivers—the Minjiang, Qingyijiang, and Dadu. Dating back more than two thousand years, it has been a prosperous town with beautiful scenery attractive to common people and great writers and scholars alike. The towering Soaring to the Clouds Hill (Lingyunshan) about half a kilometers east of Leshan town is the site of many historical buildings, temples, and stone tablets with inscriptions and calligraphic works by celebrated writers over the dynasties. It is also the site of the world’s largest stone statue of Buddha.
