Multiple but compatible religion beliefs

Yunnan is a religious resort well known in China as well as an important place where many religions of the world gather. Many religions are widely distributed among the diversified nationalities in Yunnan, including Buddhism, Taoism, Catholicism, Christianity, Islamism as well as the Dongba Religion, Benzu Religion and other primitive religions believed by some minorities of Yunnan. 


Among these religions, the three branches of Buddhism including Mahayana, Hinayana and Tibetan Buddhism are broadly spread in the middle, south and northwest of Yunnan, forming a special phenomenon of many religions gathering in one place compatibly, which is rare in the world. They have made Yunnan an “Ideal Kingdom” with special appeal to pilgrims from home and abroad.
