Limpid and refreshing to the bones
Lies a hidden spring in the chamber of stones

Bamboos outside guarding
A cool warmth is mildly sheltered within

Who created this hill wonderland
In this immortal land

So marvelous it outstrips
The Ever-bright Hall of the Hans’

The StoneCaves in The Five Hills was the site where the ancestors mined the stone material 800 years ago and is crowned as the “littoral stone caves to the sky”. Up to now more than 100 stone caves in 30 caves complexes have been discovered.

Some stone caves resemble a giant square well, with the height of 10 to 100 meters and the diameter of 10 to 30 meters at the bottom. Most of the stone caves go into the body of the hill from the top while others go horizontally. There are single caves, double-caves and multiple- caves, which are connected perpendicularly and horizontally zigzagging into the depth. They go out of the top of the hill to the sky like natural skylights, extend horizontally within the hill forming corridors, and are laid on each other like multiple-floor buildings.
