Aerial photo taken on June 6, 2018 shows the scenery of Longhu Mountain geopark in Yingtan, east China's Jiangxi Province. Longhu Mountain is famous for being one of the birthplaces of Taoism, with many Taoist temples built upon the mountainside. Archaeologists unearthed the ruins of China's largest Taoist temple - the Great Shangqing Palace - at Longhu Mountain and found that its structure bears a striking resemblance to that of palaces in Beijing's Forbidden City, the former imperial residence. In 2010, UNESCO inscribed Longhu Mountain on the World Heritage List. (Xinhua/Pan Siwei)
