In front of the Lingyin temple, there is a hill called the Peak Flying From Afar. How did the hill get such a name? Actually, there is a legend, in the year 326, an Indian monk Huili came to Lingyin and built Lingyin temple. He found the hill in front of the temple exactly like the Lingjiu hill in India. He thought the hill must have flown from India, so he named it Peak Flying From Afar.
