The area has a long history, with Mount Taishan highly-regarded in ancient times. The mountain was considered to be the first of the countries five sacred mountains, and was a place where emperors prayed for the fortunes of the nation. Mount Taishan was also a focal point for religion in the area, providing a base for the likes of Buddhism and Taoism.
Taian is also a noted tourist city. Although Mount Taishan is the most celebrated of its attractions, other scenic spots, such as the Peach Blossom Ravine and Dai Temple, are also well worth a visit.
