Fubo Hill, which is situated to the west of Li River, is standing half on land and half on water. On the hill visitors can visit the Xinxi Marquis Temple built during Tang Dynasty, a 300-year old iron boiler which weighs more than 1000 kilograms and a large bell which weighs 2700 kilograms and was build in Qing Dynasty. It is said that the boiler can prepare enough food for one thousand people. On the southern slope of the hill visitors can find the Pearl-Returning Cave. Inside is the “Try the Sword” Rock. It is said that General Fubo has tested his sword by cutting a stone pillar and this therefore has left a crevice at the bottom ever since. At the end of the cave is the Thousand-Buddha Cave in which one can find 250 Buddhist statues and inscriptions of various periods. Most of the statues were made in Tang and Song Dynasty.
