‘Bathing in the divine light of Ming Shen the great, you will be blessed with wellness, fortune and peace’. Known to the world, Chishan Ming Shen is a 58.8-meter wrought bronze statue of a god of seasea, sitting on the mountain and facing the ocean to protect the surroundings. Legend has it that Ming Shen helped Korean hero Jang Bogo achieve his success, and saved Japanese Master Ennin from marine perils, leading worships from people from China, Korea and Japan. The proverb says ‘protected by Ming Shen, prepared for success’. This has become a common belief along the coast. In 2013, the legendary stories of Mingshen has been listed as intangible cultural heritage of Shandong Province.
