Introduction of Fenghuang Mountain
Regards as the "Small Mt.Huangshan", Fenghuang Mountain is approximately 33 kilometers away in a straight-line northwest from downtown Beijing. It is a challenging site, even for youngsters. But it is worth trying a trek along the tree-covered zigzagging natural mountain lanes.
The Fenghuang mountain covers 15 square kilometers and is divided into three travel sections: the South Travel Route, Central Travel Route and the North Travel Route. Grotesque rocks, mountain peaks, pavilions and towers made of huge rocks are the main features of all the routes.
Inside the main gate are two small temples: Guandi Temple (The God of War Temple) and Longquan Temple (Dragon Spring Temple). Temples dedicated to the God of War were once one ubiquitous in Beijing, celebrating the manly and public virtues of the historical figure Guan Yu (162-220 AD). Guan was especially venerated in ancient China for his bravery, loyalty and legendary martial skills known throughout the country.
The Dragon Spring Temple has a history of more than 1,000 years, dating from the Liao Dynasty (926-1125). There is a legend that at the bottom of the pool there is a golden teapot large enough to slake the thirst of nine people.
Other features of the temple compound include two large Maidenhair trees that still bear ginkgo fruit despite being there for a millennium, and a small pagoda containing the remains of a Buddhist master surnamed Wei. A large pair of stone shoes sits at the base of the reliquary.
