Tianzhushan Area not only has distinctive natural scenery but also a rich culture and history of more than a thousand years. Back in the Spring and Autumn Period, the fiefdom of the ancient Wan State was located here hence the names Wan Mountain and Wan Water. The abbreviation of Anhui Province “Wan” also has its origin here. A massive amount of historical relics can still be found here with 3 sites under National Protection, 10 Sites under provincial protection and 38 sites under the county-level protection. These precious culture legacies are valuable assets for scientific research and archaeological study.
