When visitors walk through the gate of Huangsi Temple, they will see an iron bell on the right bell tower that was once rung by monks to mark the time of day.

Fuling Tomb on Tianzhu Mountain, surrounded by lush pine forests and towering peaks, is a place where tourists can come to enjoy nature at its most beautiful, so magnificent are the views of Tianzhu Mountain.

On the south bank of Xiu Lake, Hui Mountain is the highest of the scenic mountain peaks, reaching 265 m above sea level at its tallest. Winter snow shining on the mountaintop can be seen dozens of miles away. Miao Runyu, a poet in the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), named the mountain “Sunny Snow”.

One of the busiest rivers in ancient China, Hunhe River carried summer cargo ships and winter load sledges in all directions. Now, visitors can enjoy a magnificent ferry ride at dusk.

In the early Qing Dynasty, mountains and rivers surrounded the site of a dagoba. Now, every time the sun sets, the tower shadows are reflected in the water, glowing to create a poetic scene.

A hundred years ago, Wanliu Pond was well known for its numerous varieties of willows. It is a good place to escape the summer heat.

During the Qing Dynasty, a large natural pool held many lotuses. Every season, the lotus flower’s full bloom surrounded visitors with a delightful fragrance.

On the banks of the Wanquan River, the old site of Wanquan Fishing now hosts water kiosks, tea and wine gongs, bazaars and cruise ships, and is surrounding by mountains, rivers, flowers and grasslands, making it a appealing tourist attraction.
