Glossy Ganoderma hill (Zhishan)
Standing in the northwest of the city, this hill was named for the purple glossy ganoderma, a medicinal herb, said to be growing on its slopes. The hill is the highest peak in Zhangzhou. Many temples were built on the hill since the Tang Dynasty (618-907), but most of the buildings were desolated over the years and there remain only three pavilions: Ganlu, Xianzhen, and Rihua.

South Hill Temple (Nanshansi)
A well-known Buddhist monastery in the south of Zhangzhou, this temple was first built during the Tang Dynasty, and the existing buildings were reconstructed during the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). The temple has magnificent buildings and spacious compounds. At the shrine of the main hall, there is a statue of the Buddha made of pure white marble. The five-meter statue of Maitreya in the center of the hall was carved from a huge single piece of stone during the Tang Dynasty. (Source: china.org.cn)
