Wushan Hill (Pitch Dark Hill)

Wushan Hill is one of three hills in Fuzhou city. It lies next to Yu Hill, 84 meters above sea level. As one of the famous tour resorts, it boasts many places of historical interest. The most famous is the Black pagoda (Wu Ta), one of the "The Opposing pagodas" -- White pagoda (Bai Ta) and Black pagoda (Wu Ta). The Black pagoda, so named because it stands on the southern slope of the Black Hill (Wu Shan) or Black Rock Hill (Wu Shi Shan). It is 31 meters in height, also seven-tiered and octagonal. Its formal name was Chong Miao Bao Sheng Jian Lao Ta (Pagoda of Wisdom, Sacredness and Solidity). 

Wushan Hill (Pitch Dark Hill) fuzhouWithstanding many repairs throughout different dynasties, its architectural style remains mainly that of the Five Dynasties. There are many odd rocks and tall trees in the hill. On top of the hill, we have a bird's eye view of Fuzhou city. There are 200 odd inscriptions now. Many have left their handwriting on the cliffs; such as Li Yangbing in the Tang Dynasty, Cai Xiang,Li Gang and Zhu Xi in the Song Dynasty and Sha Dula in the Yuan Dynasty. It's a nice place to practice calligraphy. In the hill, pavilions, platforms, inscriptions on the cliffs and tall trees are harmonious with each other making it a great resort for recreation. There are several very good arts and crafts shops at the base of the hill.
