In the spring of the 16th year of Qianlong's reign (1751 A.D.), Qianlong made his first southward tour, and the imperial boat passed through the canal, turned to the Xujiang River, and entered the Xiangxi River, where he left the boat and disembarked. Qianlong was fond of traveling in the mountains and playing in the water, writing and inking, and wherever he went, he would write poems and inscriptions. When he saw this ancient road in the mountain ponds, he could not help but be inspired by the poem, and immediately accounted for the seven rhymes of a poem. Later, the seven rhymes were engraved by local officials in the monument, placed in the pavilion, and the opposite side of the Ming Dynasty Yiquan Pavilion mirror, becoming a major landscape of the ancient town.
