  Five Springs Mountain Park

Brief / profile
As the largest park in Lanzhou, the Five Springs Mountain Park covers an area of 266,400 square meters and is famous for its tranquil environment and marvelous scenery. With over 10 groups of ancient architecture, this is also a sacred place. Followers of Buddhism come here to worship on every April 8th according to the Chinese calendar.

This park is located in the northwest of Gaolan Mountain, which lies in the south part of the downtown area in Lanzhou City, Gansu Province.

Why got its this name
It got this name due to the five springs- Hui, Ganlu, Juyue, Mozi and Mengwu in the park.

The Middle Peak of the Five Springs Mountain is the highest point in the park. Ganlu Spring, Juyue Spring, and Mozi Spring are over the Middle Peak area while Meng Spring and Hui Spring are on either side of Middle Peak.








The first spring is Ganlu Spring when you passing by the Tibetan Buddhism Mani Temple.
Juyue Spring is the most magical one among the five springs due to its unique location. This spring looks like a well.
Mozi Spring means to know the gender of a fetus by touching or feeling the stone. A Buddha in charge of birth is worshiped in the Dizang Temple which is near the Mozi Spring, so people believe the Mozi Spring can tell whether it will be a boy or a girl.
The last two springs lie on the two sides of Middle Peak. Meng Spring is on the east. The other spring was called Hui Spring.
Besides the five springs in the park, there’re also a lot of temples and pavilions along the passage on the mountain such as Wenchang Temple, Butterfly Pavilion, and Golden Buddha Temple etc making this park a religious spot.


It boasts a history of over 2,000 years. In 1955, it was open to the public as a park.

Legend and Story
There’s also a legend on the Five Springs Mountain Park. It’s said that in the Western Han Dynasty, Huo Qubing a famous general was dispatched by the emperor to go on a punitive expedition to Hun People- an ethnic minority living in the northwest of China at that time. The troops had walked for a long time, so they became exhausted when getting to the foot of Gaolan Mountain. However, they could not find any water in the neighborhood. General Huo jabbed his horsewhip for 5 times. Suddenly 5 springs spurting water into the air appeared. From then on, the local people called the mountain Five Springs Mountain.
