On the peak in front of Lingyin Temple are more than 470 stone sculptures dating from the Song to Yuan dynasties. These stone sculptures are rarely seen in China. The most exquisite are the statue of Monk Qi Ci (an incarnation of Maitreya) carved during the Song regime and that of Guanyin with three faces and eight arms, a Yuan Dynasty sculpture. Both hold an important position in the annals of China's sculptural art.
