Douchui Mountain earned this name by its appearance which looks like a Chui (a kind of container used for foodstuff storage). In Tang Dynasty, an officer from Zhangming County Government, Dou Ziming, who was in charge of the literature and art, had ever cultivated himself according to the Tao religious doctrine at Douchui.
