A member of the Dai ethinic community prays at the site of a large stone in a forest considered to be a holy site. The site is considered to be holy as approximatley 370 years ago a highly respected doctor was reputed to have died against this, the only large stone in the forest. It has since become a place of prayer for the local buddhist population. Local people are replanting an area of forest on this hill at Mangyangguan, Xishuangbanna, China. This project is supported by the BGCI and has been studied by XTBG for over 30 years.
