MOUNT TAI
SYMBOL OF THE CHINESE SPIRIT

Mount Tai is closely related with the forming of Chinese nation's psychology and spirit. The reason why Mount Tai was named "Ancestor of all mountains as well as the Head of the Five Mountains" lies in the ancient people's geographical concept that dwelling in the centre of the universe was the most desirable. From this point of view, the original worship of Mount Tai was linked essentially with the forming of the nation's thinking model of centrality. The centrality and achievement-maintaining thinking models thus have played an important role in the unity of the country and in the solidarity and prosperity of the nation. As the materialization of the national spirit, Mount Tai has often been taken to symbolize the greatness, diligence, honesty, intelligence and tenacity of the Chinese people.
