Cultural Experiencial Area
Cowherd Weaving Girl Scenic Area is located in Nanya Township southeast of Yiyuan County, Shandong Province. The scenic area comprises Daxian Mountain and the Yi River. The scenic area is densely forested with clean air. The love story widely circulated in Chinese folk lore between the cowherd and the weaving girl happened here. Yiyuan, as the place from which the "Cowherd Weaving Girl Legendary Home" was propagated, has ancient building ruins that correspond to the legendary locales as well as Cowherd Temple and Weaving Girl's Cave, which were built during the Tang Dynasty. The two face each other across the Yi River from east to west. The mountain and water layout across the river shores match Altair, the Milky Way and Vega in the heavens.
