Qīngyuán Shan 清源山, formerly North Mountain, with atmospheric clouds rising amongst peaks, became known during the Tang dynasty and reached a peak in reputation between 1297 to 1911. The centuries of reverence of this place have imparted 9 Taoist sculptures and hundreds of stone carving relics. Li, one of the the legendary eight immortals, roamed the winding paths amongst the dark green pine & cypress. When Li placed his iron crutch onto mountain rock a spring issued forth revealing one of numerous clean, fresh springs of Qīngyuán Shan.
