Additional Information

Introduction

The Xixiang Pool is surrounded by ethereal white clouds and towering ancient trees. The temple where the pool is located is actually just a small hut where the monks often burn tea and receive guests. During the reign of the Kangxi Emperor in the Qing Dynasty, the Master Xingneng expanded it into the "Tianhua Chanyuan" (Sky Flower Zen Academy) because of the hexagonal stone steps in the pool. According to legend, the Bodhisattva Samantabhadra once passed by here, allowing his steed, a white elephant, to bathe here, granting it the name "Bathing Elephant Pool“.
