  • Haiyue sail in the well

    In Chongkou, Houjie, there is a rock at Jinniu Mountain called Xieke (Crab Shell) Rock. There are steep cliffs and bamboo forests, and the scenery is beautiful. In ancient times, a Zen master passing by fell in love with the scenery and decided to set up a temple there named Haiyue. The Haiyue legend tells of a couple who were separated not long after marriage. Every day, the wife would come to the Xieke Rock and wait for her husband to return. One day, she came to the well beside the rock for water, and saw in the reflection a returning ship with her husband. Running to the port, she saw he had indeed returned. The two believed that the gods had helped them.
