What to expect at Wuquan Mountain Park

The temples in the park are harmoniously connected with galleries and pavilions against the backdrop of the mountains. Lanzhou Wuquan Mountain Park is filled with the green bushes and trees, creating a secluded and refined surrounding.

Wuquan Mountain Park's name is derived from the five springs which are Sweet Spring, Scooping-Moon Spring, Fumbling-for-Offspring Spring, Beneficial Spring as well as Grateful Spring. A saying goes that in the 3rd year of Emperor Wu in the Han Dynasty (20 B.C.), when General Huo Qubing was going on an expedition to the west, he had his troops stationed here. When his soldiers felt very thirsty and tired, he struck the ground with his horsewhip in five places. Instantly, the five springs gushed out from underneath the ground. At present, the Bronze Ambassador Buddha and the Taihe Iron Bell are the top-two antiques of the Lanzhou Wuquan Mountain Park, which are classified as relics under national protection.
