Huishan Hil

Another name for this famous hill, which stands in a west suburb of Wuxi, is Nine Dragons (Jiulongshan) as its nine hilltops look like dancing dragons. According to a fairy tale, nine sons of the Dragon King fell asleep after playing ball and turned into the nine peaks of Huishan. There are a dozen famous springs on the hill, including the “second spring under heaven” and Dragon’s Eye Spring (Longyanquan). Places of interest at the east foot of the hill are pleasure Garden (Jichangyuan), Chunshen Gully, Huishan Temple, and Gold Totus Bridge (Jinlianqiao). In 1958 the hill was linked by a man-made lake with Tin Hill (Xishan) to become Xihui Park.
