Shizhuang Mountain is located in Fohui village, Sanqi town about 25 kilometers southwest of Longgang town in Dazu District. According to the records found in the nearby temple, the carvings were made between 1082 and 1096 AD during the Northern Song Dynasty.
The rock carving cliff is about 130 meters long and between 3-8 meters high. Here you will find rock carvings showing three religions, Buddhism, Taoism, and Confucianism, three religions that you would not usually see together in a single rock carving site like this.
