Two 1000-year old pine trees stand at the west slope of the Shiliang Hill. They look like two fighting green dragons, and therefore, got a name of “the pine trees with fighting dragon shapes”. At south, there is the Shiqiao Temple with orange bounding walls. It was built in the Liang Dynasty. The existing temple was rebuilt by the government.
