Legend has it that once upon a time, a beautiful and industrious maiden by the name of Wengu lived her beauty, wanted her as his eighth concubine. The girl turned down, but her tormentor kept insisting until she and her lover, a woodcutter named Xialang drowned themselves together in the pool. All of a sudden, a crack appeared in the bottom of the pool and a pair of butterflies flew out. They danced and pursued each other, a host of butterflies of many kinds came to be known as Butterfly Spring hence the name.

It is a fact that on the fifteenth day of the fourth month of the Chinese Lunar Calendar(Butterfly Festival of Dali) thousands of butterflies converge on the camphor tree, and many tourists come especially to view the spectacle.
