Elephant Hill also known as Elephant Trunk
Hill, a huge rock formation of an elephant by the confluence
of the Yang and Li river
, looks as if its trunk is dipping into the water. Legend
has it that this hill was really an elephant belonging
to the Emperor of Heaven, and that when the Jade Emperor
set out to conquer the Earth, the elephant was made
to work so hard providing transport that he fell sick
and some farmers saved his life. For this the elephant
was very grateful and decided to stay on earth and help
the farmers. The Emperor of Heaven was so angry about
its drinking from the river. The emperor's sword thrust
turned the elephant into the rocky hill, hence the name.
A pagoda erected on top of the hill stands for the hilt
of the sword.
