Huqiu, originally name Haiyong Mountain, is located to the northwest of the old city of Suzhou, Jiangsu Province. The name Huqiu comes with the story that in the Spring and Autumn period (770B.C.-221B.C.), Emperor Wu died in 496 B.C. and was buried here. For three days, a white tiger lay on his tomb. Huqiu is the No.1 scenic spot in Wuzhong; in this area, Huqiu Tower, Yunyan Si and Sword Pond are the most popular historical sites.
