Songyang School of Classical Learning

One of the four most famous ancient schools of classical learning in China is located to the south of Central Mountain Temple. The simple buildings house many historical relics. In the courtyard, there are two cypress trees more than 1,900 years old; their trunks are so thick that five people with arms fully extended can barely form a ring around them. It is said that these trees were named “cypress generals” by Emperor Wu of the Han Dynasty (206 B.C. – A.D. 220).
