Ling Jiou Mountain, situated near the outskirts of Fulong, is not actually a mountain, but rather a Buddhist society. Master Hsin Tao once used this place as a retreat. Later after achieving enlightenment, he established the "Ling Jiou Mountain Buddhist Society", becoming one of northern Taiwan's well-known Buddhist sites. It is renowned for its mountain and sea scenery. Located on Mt. Laolan, at its highest point it is 387 meters above sea level, and visitors must exchange IDs and wear identification badges before entering. Two legendary divine eyes are located at the doorway. When viewed separately from the left and right, they are a pair of vultures, and when viewed together they form eyes. The "divine eye" symbolizes "the eye of the void", which is Buddha's eye of wisdom. The stone carvings on the doorpost are ancient spiritual totems the world's major religions. It's a scenic spot worth visiting for the religious and cultural value. In additio, there's a religious cultural education area and a natural trail as well.
