Chaya
Mountain has a long history and rich culture. Master Xuanzang had lectured on the mountain many times. Dao Quan and Dao Yi, his two disciples were born here. Wu Cheng’en, a great talent of the Ming Dynasty, sought refuge in the mountain. On seeing the finely shaped stones of drunken pig, sleeping Monk master, the white dragon horse, 72 monkeys and the monkey king, he got his inspiration of creation and finished the classic---A Journey to the West. In 1998, Yang Jie, the general director of A Journey to the West, came to
