Wave Subduing Hill (Fubo Hill)
Subduing Hill has the Xinxi Marquis Temple built
during the Tang Dynasty (618-907). The title of
Xinxi Marquis was given to Fubo General Ma Yuan,
so the name of the hill. Half of the graceful
peak is in the river and the other half on land.
During flood season turbulent currents lash the
hill rocks. On top of the hill one will see an
exquisite scenery like a traditional Chinese painting.
Inside the "Return
the Pearl" Cave, also known as Fubo Cave, there are the "Try the Sword"
Rock, the 1,000-Buddha Crag (Buddha images carved on stone). Among the best carvings
is a self-portrait of Mi Fu, a famous painter of the Song Dynasty (960-1279).
