Guilin Fubo Hill

fubo-hillStanding above the ground, Fubo Hill, also Wave-Subduing Hill, slopes into the Li River in the east and looms in the west.

fubo-hill01Guilin Fubo Hill is so named because waves and ripples run back wherever they meet the peak, which descends into the river, blocking the water. A tale also has it that Ma Yuan, called General Fubo, of the Han Dynasty had once passed by Guilin on a southern expedition. He poured all the pearls he carried into the river, so the hill was named after him in his memory, and there used to be a Fubo Pavilion on the hill in the Tang Dynasty.

The Fubo Hill now still has a lot of places of interest, such as Kuishui Ting (Kui Stream Pavilion), Tingtao Pavilion (Listening to Waves), Banshan Ting (Half the Hill Pavilion), Huanzhu Cave (Returned Pearl Cave), Shijian Stone (Testing Sword), Qianfo Cave (Thousand-Buddha Cave) and Coral Cave. There is also a pot that is said to be big enough to cook for one thousand people and a cast iron bell, which was built by the daughter of Prince Ding Nan of Qing Dynasty, named Kong Youde as a memorial of him.

The Shijian Stone (Testing Sword Stone) in the Returned Pearl Cave, which is closely attached to Li River, is a giant stone, hanging from the ceiling of the cave with only a few inches to the ground. It seems that its top and the ground were suddenly separated as a result of General Fubo's sword testing and it remains a wonder. In Retured Pearl Cave and Qianfo Cave, there are many stone slabs and Buddha images carved in relief in the Tang and Song Dynasties.
