Water Moon Cave (Shuiyue dong), Elephant's Eye Stone, and Pagoda for Puxian and Yunfeng Temple are the features of the  hill .

Water Moon Cave is at the riverside with water of Li River flowing through it. It looks like a full moon floating on the surface of the water with the moonlight reflected on the waves. Over 70 inscriptions from the Tang and Song dynasties can be found on the walls in and around this cave, praising the beauty of hills and waters nearby.

On top of the hill stands a pagoda named Puxian Pagoda. Built in the Ming dynasty (1368-1644), the pagoda looks like the handle of a sword.
