  The sacred Mount Tai, reputed as "Chief of China's Five Sacred Mountains" and "First Mountain Under Heaven", is located in Tai'an city, Shandong province. With an elevation of 1,545 meters and covering an area of 426 square kilometers, Mount Tai is the highest peak in Shandong.

  Harmoniously integrating China's history and culture, natural landscape geological features, as well as customs and habits, Mount Tai is regarded as the epitome of Chinese history and culture, and the spiritual home of the Chinese nation. Mount Tai was the object of an imperial cult for nearly 2,000 years, the sole mountain where the Grand Worship of Heaven and Earth was held. It has always been a source of inspiration for Chinese artists and scholars and symbolizes ancient Chinese civilizations and beliefs.
