    Huangqi Mountain has been a famous place for outings, mountain climbing and worship since the Tang Dynasty. The lantern hanging at the top of Huangqi Mountain is first of the Dongguan Eight Ancient Sceneries. According to ancient legend, there was once a Banyan tree at the top of the mountain that attracted fireflies, making it look like a huge lantern at night, according to ancient legend. Now a huge lantern several meters high has been built at the top and can be seen from many parts of Dongguan at night.
