A legend says that in the Liang
of Southern Dynasties (502-557) when Master Monk Yunguang was
expounding the texts of Buddhism at Jubaoshan Heaven was so moved
that it rained flowers. So the colorful pebbles with with beautiful
patterns and veins in the mountain are called rain flower pebbles.
Yuhuashi is a compound of quartzite, flint and agate, and has
a popular name rain-flower agate.
Linggusi (Soul Valley Temple) was originally
Kaishansi, an ancient temple of Liang Dynasty (502-557), which
was moved here in early Ming when Xiaoling Mausoleum was built.
The large temple with a lot of halls was badly damaged in the
Taiping Heavenly Kingdom (1851-1864) period. The present temple
was built in 1867 in the Qing Dynasty. Some relics of Master
Monk Xuanzang is shrined in a sandalwood dagoba in Master Monk
Xuanzang Memorial Hall.
