Light of China Square is between Putuo Mountain and Crescent Mountain. It boasts of two craftworks, one is the stone carving murals and the other is Shi Ji Bao Ding (the precious Ding of the century). The mural, made up of more than 100 stone carvings, epitomizes 5000-year Chinese civilization. Shi Ji Bao Ding, a four-legged Ding at a height of 4.6 meters (15 feet), symbolizes that the country flourishes and people live in peace.
Seven Star Cave got its name for the seven peaks supposed to resemble the star pattern of the Big Dipper constellation nearby - four peaks in the north are called Putuo Hill, three in the south are called Lunar Hill. The famous Seven Star cave is just located at the halfway the Putuo Hill. The cave is famous for its stalactites of various shapes inside. The cave is divided into three parts. The upper part is so high and steep that one can hardly reach while the lower part is an underground river channel. The middle part, an 814-meter-long tunnel, with the widest place of 49 meters and the highest of 27 meters, serves as the main touring area. the temperature in this cave remains 20 degrees all the year round, providing a comfortable condition for visitors. Since Sui and Tang dynasties, the cave has been a favorite tour resort, and many visiting poets, writers, scholars and nobles once left their inscriptions on the wall.
Nestling under the paunch, as it were, of Putuo Hill is Seven Stars Cave. The cave, which is renowned for its dazzling array of stalactites and stalagmites, is divided into three sections: an upper section that is so high and steep that one can hardly reach its top; a lower section through which runs an underground river; and a middle section that consists of an 800-meter-long tunnel whose widest point is 49 meters and whose highest point measures 27 meters. The middle section serves as the main touring area. Seven Stars Cave has been a popular tourist attraction for centuries. As early as during the Song Dynasty, speleologists explored the cave, leaving their "signatures" on the cave's walls. With its myriad of bizarrely shaped karst formations that resonate with unique sounds, the cave is an interesting - and indeed, enticing - adventure that will reward your time and effort with fascinating sights and sounds.
