Shuimu Mountain is one of the earliest Buddhist holy places in Yunnan. In the eighth year of Emperor Xianzong of Tang Dynasty (813), the ministers of Nanzhao asked to build this temple. Zen Master Pu Ji Qingguang used his meditation stick to dig the ground, "but there is a clear spring gushing out because of the name of the water." On the opening day, the leaders of Liuzhao came to congratulate. When the incense is most prosperous, it is known as "a thousand monks and eight hundred nuns". There have been eminent monks living in the waters and mountains throughout the ages, such as the founder of the Tang Dynasty Pu Ji Qingguang, the Song Dynasty's Zen master Jing Miaocheng, and the Wuwangru and Feixiangxing Zen masters in the late Qing Dynasty. The members of the royal family became monks here. The famous monk in the early Qing Dynasty also lived here for a long time. Since the Tang Dynasty, the Shuimushan Temple has undergone many repairs and constructions, and gradually formed a building complex, with water eyes, sage filling, Dizang Temple, Lingguang Temple, Pagoda, Sanjiao Pavilion, Pilu Pavilion, Mi Tuan Temple and other temples. Shuimushan Temple is divided into three temples, the upper, the middle and the lower temple. The only existing temple was rebuilt in the second year of Xuantong in the Qing Dynasty (1910) and rebuilt from 1984 to 1987. Xia An is followed by the mountain gate, the tower courtyard, the front yard, the northwest side hall, and the Daxiong Hall. There are monks' rooms, incense cupboards, ministries hall, studio hall, tea room, and cloud hall on the north and south sides. In front of Xia'an, there are dozens of acres of pears carefully cultivated by monks in the past dynasties.
The cemetery of Buddhist monks in the past dynasties, with legendary underground palace relics, is built on the hillside and is lush.
