The mountain also has been described as being so attractive and charming that there are now many folk tales attached to it.

The mountain is home to some ancient and historic buildings. Among them is the Laojun Palace and the relics of Huaqing Palace Court. It once served as the sacred place for worshipping Laozi, the founder of Taoism.

Another is Bingjian Pavilion, a place in memory the Xi'an Incident on 12, Dec,1936, General Zhang Xueliang and Yang Hucheng ordered his army to arrest their president to persuade the leader to unite the whole country to fight against the Japanese invasion.
