Jinyingtan is a large grassland pasture of particular beauty. Two rivers, the Mapi and Halijing, cross the pasture which is divided into two, the North bank know as Jin (Gold) and the south bank as Ying (silver). The songwriter Wang Loubin got his inspiration from this site to compose the piece, "In the Place Faraway."
