Suxian Mountain Introduction

Introduction:
Located at the Chenzhou suburb, southeast Hunan Province, Suxian Mountain is o­nly 2 kilometers away from Chenzhou. This mountain is not high indeed, with its elevation o­nly 525 meters. But it has been very famous since ancient times as "World Eighteenth Blessing Land". This is because it had relations with immortal affairs. For over a thousand years, it is famous for this reason.
On the top of the Suxian Mountain, there are two Chinese characters "Longevity Mountain" (shou shan) in 55 centimeters, annotated by "Longevity Mountain Blessing Land" (shou shan fu di) but two characters "Blessing Land" (fu di) until now never appear. Chenzhou grace people thought that since Suxian Mountain is a blessing land, therefore no need of engraving “Blessing Land" (fu di) again. In order to fully implement the instructions of the Municipal Marty Committee, the Municipal Government and the Municipal Administration Bureau, to promote Suxian Mountain taste and status, and probe deep into Suxian Mountain human culture as "World Eighteenth Blessing Land", Suxian Mountain Scenery Administration reformed the walls inside by building stone hills o­n the road sides of inner square, and engraved "Blessing" (fu) in different styles and sizes. The character's typeface all stemmed from 18 emperor's writings since Tang Taizhong. By "Ten thousand"(wan) is meant many, so "Ten thousand blessings "implies being propitious and indicated that it is ancient place of "World Eighteenth Blessing Land". "Ten thousand Blessings Mountain" (wan fu shan) means that Suxian Mountain is a blessing place. It is said that if you touch or count the number of "blessing" (fu), you will be as blessing and fortune as the Heaven. The completion of Wanfu Mountain makes the square theme more distinct and clear.
