The cave is situated in Lujia Village and represents a stalagmite, stalactite, and rock formation depository, illuminated with bright coloured lights. Its fascinating gallery of natural sculptures looks more like a 240 meter long blazing underground palace. Every limestone formation has its poetic Chinese name, such as the Virgin Forest, the Flower Mountain, or the Crystal Palace. Many of them have been compared to distinct shapes of natural images and mythological creatures. Moreover, inside the cave, you will find more than 70 ink-inscriptions which can be dated back as far as 792 AD.
