  Wu Palace

"Romance of the Three Kingdoms" is about the warring and political battle-of-wits amongst three countries - Wei, Shu and Wu. In the story, The ruler of Wu married his sister to Liu Bei, the ruler of Shu, to trick Liu into coming to his country so as to capture him. Unfortunately, his ploy was foiled and Liu Bei escaped back into his own country, with his new bride. The ruler of Wu suffered another loss when his troops fell into a trap when pursuing Liu Bei. This story gave rise to the Chinese proverb - "Pei Le Fu Ren You Zhe Bing" (to suffer a double loss).

The 3 words carved into the rock says "Wu Wang Gong" (Palace of Wu). At this sight, there is also a "Liu Bei's Wedding Chamber".
