Climbing Mount Tai, the first of the sacred mountains of ancient China, is a beautiful way to start discovering Jinan. The Temple of Confucius is a historical monument in the city to which followers of the great philosopher and thinker make regular pilgrimages. The Thousand Buddha Mountain, with images of the Buddha carved into the rocky cliffs, is also a major place of worship.
