Qingjiao Ciji Palace, also known as East Palace, is located on the Dongming Range, Qishan Mountain in Qingjiao village in Xiamen's Haicang district. It covers an area of 1.15 square kilometers.

The palace was built to honor Wu Tao, a "Medical Saint" who devoted his whole life to saving people in China and Southeast Asia. The palace was previously named Ciji Miao and was built in 1151; it was later renamed Ciji Palace in 1241. Nowadays it has become a famous tourist resort with key historical and cultural relics under State protection. Every year thousands of pilgrims make the trek to the site to pay homage to the "Medical Saint.”
