The Foshou (Buddha's hand) Mountain Scenic Area is located in Guoshan Village, Xiexing Town, southwest of the Former Residence of Deng Xiaoping. It was named after the "Buddha's hand" for the large stone formation in the middle of the mountain shaped in the likeness of the Buddha's palm. At the foot of the mountain lies the Wei River which leads out towards the Qu River. At the half peak of Foshou Mountain lies the burial site for the ancestors of Deng Xiaoping's family. A new school, Beishan Elementary School, was opened in Xiexing Ancient Town, Guang'an County, while the former site of Beishan Elementary School is located inside the government building of Xiexing Town facing the old street. The wooden structures of the old residences and mottled walls exude a sense of the vicissitudes of history.
