Fubo Hill is a dominant rock set in the north east corner of the city, beside the Li river. Below the hill are some caves where many carvings and inscriptions have been left dating back to the Tang dynasty of China. This makes these among of the earliest Buddhist carvings in China as Buddhism was first introduced into China during the Tang dynasty. Steps lead around the hill and up to the summit where a good view of the city can be found.
