Springs in Jinan Are Matchless under the Sun

Jinan has been known as the “City of Springs”. Numerous clear and sweet springs gush from the underground and form rivers and lakes in the city. In the water abundant season, people in the areas with dense springs will see the gorgeous views that “every household has spring water and willows”, and “over the glistening rocks the spring water glides”. As early as in the Song Dynasty (960-1279), litterateur Zeng Gong said: “Qi teems with sweet springs, matchless under the sun.” Yu Qinyi, a geographer of the Yuan Dynasty (1279-1368), praised: “Jinan’s mountains and rivers rank first in Qilu and its springs are the finest under heaven.”
