The Treasury of Lives

Wutai Shan, a group of mountains in Shanxi province, is one of the most important Buddhist pilgrimage sites in China. An active site of Buddhist practice since at least the fourth century, Wutai Shan is revered as the home of Mañjuśrī, the bodhisattva of wisdom, who is believed to manifest along the pilgrimage route in different forms. There are several Tibetan Buddhist monasteries at the site and the mountain has historically been a popular pilgrimage site for Tibetans. Many official meetings and imperially sponsored rituals among Tibetan and Manchu dignitaries have been held at Wutai Shan.
