The Wudang Mountains are, in fact, a relatively small range in the northwest of Hubei province. In recent times, they have become a major tourist attraction. Part of their appeal is their spectacular scenery. But the mountains also hold considerable historical interest. In particular, many Taoist sites are to be found among the peaks and valleys. One of them is the so-called Golden Hall, built in the Yuan Dynasty, some seven hundred years ago. Originally it stood at the top of Tianzhu, or Heavenly Pillar, Peak. Later it was moved to Xiaolian, or Little Lotus, Peak. The hall isn't particularly big. What sets it apart is the materials it is built from.
