During the fourth year of the Qingli period of the Song Dynasty (1044 AD), Fan Zhongyan, due to the location of his ancestors’ tombs, requested to change “Baiyun An” on Tianping Mountain to the “Gongde Xianghuo Yuan” (the Monastery of Virtuous Deeds and Fragrant Offerings) of the Fan family. Tianping Mountain was renamed “Ci Shan” and became known as the “Fan Tomb Mountain”. Two years later, for the reconstruction of Yueyang Tower, Fan Zhongyan wrote a famous line, “First worry about the country’s troubles, and later enjoy the country’s happiness” which has become a famous saying for generations.
