It was dubbed as Ying Wu chun shen (Spring is very much in the air on the Yingwushan) in the Ming dynasty and acclaimed as the Fairyland of Mingfeng in the Qing dynasty. The area is named after the Golden Temple which is actually made out of bronze in the 17th century. There is a Botanical Garden at the bottom of the hill where you can ascend up the hill via a cable car from.
