Stone Bell Hills (Shizhongshan)
Rising at the mouth of Poyang Lake in Pengze County where the lake and the Yangtze River meet, these hills are shaped like two huge bells. The water lapping against the rocks in the caves at the bottom of the cliffs also gives out the sound of bells. A legend says that when the Jade Emperor had his palace built, he sent Elephant God to fetch some jade bells. Elephant God carelessly dropped the bells here, and they turned into hills. The numerous historical sites on the hills draw many sightseers.
With a constant stream of visitors from different places for thousands of years, the Stone Bell Hill is famous for its singular prospects, a holy place for Confucian intellectuals, and a place of great strategic importance. And the most mysterious and the most attractive thing about Stone Bell Hill is the sound visitors can hear on the mountain.
