  Thousand Buddha Temple (Qianfosi) was founded at the foot of a hill, which eventually was renamed after the temple into "Thousand Buddha Mountain" (千佛山). The Thousand Buddha Mountain is a small hill located about 2.5 kilometers southeast from the center of the city of Jinan . The hill's ridge runs in east-west direction and the summit rises 285 meters above sea level and slightly more than 200 meters from the hill's base. Since 1959, it has been a public park which also comprises Yellowstone Cliff to the south and Jueshan Mountain to the east and covers a total area of 1.66 square kilometers. The Thousand-Buddha Cliff is located on the northern flank of the hill behind the Xingguochan Temple. The foot of the cliff is pierced by five caves. The caves' height ranges from 3 meters down to only 20 centimeters. About 130 Buddha statues which were carved into Thousand-Buddha Cliff during the Sui period remain today. The Jile Cave houses 16 Buddha statues, the tallest of which is 3 m high. Along with the Buddha statues, temples and other buildings were erected on the hill. The most renown of these structures is the Xingguochan Temple, which was originally build during the reign of Emperor Taizhong of Tang as an expansion of the Sui-Dynasty Qianfo Temple.
