About Tiger Hill

The Surging Sea Hill as it is commonly known is a small hillock on top of which are several historical buildings, each very unique and carry their own significance. The hill is relatively small, but it has a rich history. One of the center points is the Tomb of Kind He Lu. According to legends when his son had buried him on the hill, three days after the funeral a white tiger came and sat upon the grave as though guarding it. It was this incident that gave the hill its distinct name. The oldest pagoda, Huqiu Tower, is a great vantage point to see the city from. The tea cafe at the lu U is an experience for all tea lovers. For the adventurers out there, the Sword Testing Stone and Sword Pool is the best spot to try out some old age combat mastery.
