The pine trees on the road to Mount Tai, compared with the inscription characteristics and architecture of the entire Mount Tai, seem relatively ordinary.
Qin Wangzheng wiped out the six kingdoms, and after unified the world, he became the first emperor. He heard that some Confucian scholars said that the ancient emperors must go to Mount Tai to hold the ceremony of ennouncing Zen in person before they can be regarded as virtuous kings. Mencius also said that a new emperor must recognize his virtues and accept his sacrifices before he can be regarded as the true king. Qin Shihuang then led the minister of civil and military affairs and a large group of helpers to Mount Tai. They first stopped at the foot of Mount Tai to discuss how to hold the ceremony. According to Confucian scholars, the so-called "Feng Zen" means offering sacrifices to the sky on the top of Mount Tai and the ground at the foot of Mount Tai. The former is called Feng and the latter is called Zen. However, he also said that the emperor should not take a car on the top of Mount Tai to worship the sky. You must take a car. You must also wrap the wheels with rushes to avoid damaging the grass and trees on the mountain. Only then can they show respect for Mount Tai. When the tyrant heard that he had such conditions, he was annoyed that Confucian scholars were not allowed to participate in the festival, and he took his trusted ministers up the mountain. Cut down trees and grass, and dig hills and stones along places that are not well painted. He thought to himself: "I want to see the gods of Mount Tai, what can I do?"
Qin Shihuang and his entourage went up to Mount Tai mighty and sacrificed to the sky, and erected a large stone monument on the top of the mountain. Soon, the sky suddenly changed, dark clouds rolled, and it was about to rain heavily. Some people say that when the Mount Taishan god is angry, there will be dark clouds and black rain, flash floods, and humans and animals will be washed away. Qin Shihuang had a ghost in his heart, thinking that he had offended the mountain god, so he ran down the mountain, and a group of people followed suit. The group of people just ran to Wusong Pavilion, only to hear a thunderstorm, and the pouring rain fell over their heads. Qin Shihuang was accustomed to being pampered, and Xiu talked about the mountain torrents. The heavy rain made him unable to stand, and he was about to be washed down the mountain. In a critical moment, I suddenly found a big pine tree on the side of the road. The invincible emperor hurriedly knelt down in front of the tree, clasped his hands tightly around the trunk, and muttered something in his mouth, begging the tree god for blessing. The rain fell quickly and harvested quickly, and soon it stopped. Qin Shihuang really thought that the tree god was protecting him, so he sealed the pine tree that saved him as the "Five Masters Pine"
The Five Great Pines were the only trees on Mount Tai that were sealed by the emperor. According to legend, when Emperor Qin Shihuang ascended Mount Tai, he sheltered from the rain here and was grateful for the protection of the car. This pine was named the "Five Great Pines" and was destroyed by lightning. Emperor Yongzheng of the Qing Dynasty Five plants were sent to replant, and only two are left.
Wu Da Fu Song is also a very famous scenic spot on Mount Tai. Although there is no substantive content, there are many tourists who come here. Of course, you should take a look at the famous places and take pictures.
Going forward from the Zhongtian Gate, after passing the Yunbu Bridge, about 400 meters up, you will see the Five Great Masters loose. There is also a pavilion and shops nearby. It is an important supply point on the hiking trail. Many porters are also seen. Life is not easy.
