The legend says that Crown Prince Zhaoming found it very difficult to find water when he first arrived at Zhaoyin Mountain. One day, as the prince walked along the slope, a tiger bolted out of the forest, whereupon the prince dodged it. The tiger landed at the feet of the prince and dug a deep hole with its claws. Then it roared and ran away. Instantly, a clear spring sprang from the hole.
