    Taihu Xishan Guanyin Temple opens again after reconstruction on December 24th 2016. A 66.99-meter-high Guanyin statue has been built (more than 20 floors high) with 432 steps from the foot of the mountain.

    The large Guanyin statue is 66.99-meter-high (more than 20 floors high) with 432 steps from the mountain foot. It is said that if you take all the 432 steps, you will have no annoyances in life and get good luck. Because 432 is 4 times of 108, 108 in Buddhism means all the annoyance in one’s daily life and 432 means all the annoyance in 4 seasons (the whole year). The new Guanyin statue is higher than the copper Guanyin statue in Chongyuan Temple (33 meters high). There is also a 9.9-meter high Guanyin status in the area below the steps and there are an additional ten 10-meter-high colored Guanyin statues in the Hou Guang Chang.
