Ancient Building Complex in the Wudang Mountains (China)
The Wudang Mountains consist of a small mountain range in the northwestern part of Hubei Province of China, just to the south of the city of Shiyan.
They are home to a famous complex of Taoist temples and monasteries which are especially associated with the god Zhenwu. As a counterpart to the buddhist Shaolin Monastery, Wudang is renowned for the practice of Chinese martial arts.
Building Complex at Wudang Mountains
On Chinese maps, the name "Wudangshan" is applied both to the entire mountain range (which runs east-west along the southern edge of the Hanshui River valley, crossing several county-level divisions of Shiyan Prefecture-level city), and to the small group of peaks located within Wudangshan Jiedao of the Danjiangkou County level City of the Shiyan Prefecture-level city. It is the latter specific area which is known as a Taoist center. Sources
