Introducing Baotu Spring, Baotu Spring Guide, Baotu Spring Travel Guide
Article from Chinaculture.org, edited by Cathy
As the popular saying goes, springs in Jinan occupy the first place in the world. With more than 100 springs, Jinan is famous for its springs, among which the Baotu Spring is known not only as the first one in Jinan but also as one of the four famous springs in China. The Baotu Spring is now one of the three major places of interest in Shandong Province.  

Known as the First Spring under Heaven, the Baotu Spring has a long history of more than 2,600 years, with its earliest account in Spring and Autumn Annals. Baotu Spring was also the source of the Leshui River in ancient China. When water gushes out through the three holes, the Baotu Spring sends out thunderous sounds, and water columns surge upward, looking like spinning wheels. The volume of the gushing water can reach 1.6 square meters per second.     

The Baotu Spring Park has memorials of Li Kuchan, a master in traditional Chinese Painting, Wang Xuetao and Li Qingzhao. The park also holds performances of Peking Opera all year round. With ten cultural features, including the spring, rocks, opera performances, lanterns, chrysanthemum, calligraphy, paintings and stone tablets, the Baotu Spring Park has become a world famous tour spot, which synthesizes characteristics of both the south and north parks in China and combines the spring, rocks and culture of landscape garden in one park.
