The Cradle of Nanzhao Kingdom
Weibao Mountain (Mt. Towering
Treasures) is located in the south of Weishan County
about 70 km. north of Dali. The mountain looks like
a crouching lion who turns its head back and looks at
the county seat and the belt-like Guajiang River in
the mist. The giant dam of Huanglizui Reservoir at the
foot of the mountain is like the lion's dressing table,
and the placid water the mirror.
Weibao Mountain was the place where
Xinuluo, the head of Mengshe Zhao during the early Nanzhao
period, rose to power, and it was also an important
Daoist mountain in Yunnan. Undulating and magnificent
hills are covered with dense forests and there are more
than 20 temples scattered over the mountain, yet now,
only the Dragon Pond Temple, the Jade Emperor Pavilion,
the Old Man Temple, the Twin-Crane Temple, Daoyuan Palace
and the Hidden Spring Cave remain. The renowned places,
namely the Dragon Pond with Spring Willows, the Ancient
Daoist Temple in Blue Haze, the Scholars'Recitation
Platform and the Spring Hidden in Cave are the best
scenic spots for tourist to linger on.
