The "Blessed Land near Capital"


Located in the Liujiadian Town of Pinggu District, Yaji Mountain is 363 meters high. It was highly regarded by the royal family as a Taoist fairy palace. Emperor Kangxi once referred to it as the "Blessed Land near Capital." Three times, Emperor Qianlong visited Yaji Mountain and sang poems. Many emperors erected steles here to commemorate their reigns. The Yaji Mountain Temple Fair is one of North China's four most famous temple fairs.

An ancestral temple called Bixiayuanjun Temple sits proudly on the mountain. Created in the Tang Dynasty and rebuilt and extended in later years, Bixiayuanjun Temple has now become one of the most famous ancient ancestral temples. If you feel tired after climbing the mountain, the cabins and hammocks may be a good place for you to take a break.

The twin summits of Yaji Mountain tower in late summer and early fall, and the stone forests are gorgeous and luscious. The lush and green Pinus tabulaeformis forest grows rapidly, obscuring the sky and the sun, and the wildflowers beneath the forest bloom in a rainbow of hues.
