There used to be a Zhongling Buddhist Temple built in the Ming Dynasty on the mountain. It was once one of the six most famous temples in Yunnan. However, it was torched down to ashes in 1940. People today can pitifully see its ruins and 39 Buddhist stupas. The former site of Zhongling Temple covers more than 3,000 square meters, judging from which experts have agreed that it must have been a large Buddhist temple in the past. Qian Feng (1740-1795)-a renowned painter in the Qing Dynasty-once visited Zhongling Temple and composed a couplet for it.
